Thank you, Martin Luther King, Jr.

Over time, I have grown more and more grateful for MLK, Jr. and his deep, visionary thinking. We are still as a society working on catching up with him, towards manifesting, slowly but surely– in a three steps forward, two steps backward kind of way– his beautiful dream.

I embrace his overall philosophy and feel freshly sad today that Dr. King’s life was cut so short. America and the world lost a great soul and thinker.

  1. I just finished watching a tape about MLK that showed the tragedies he lived through. I did not know that he suffered from severe depression and jumped out a window when he was 12 after his grandmother died. Despite living with such tragedy and deep sadness, he was able to find a purpose to keep living and make a difference, and what a difference he made. Thank you for providing this space to share so much of what life is really about. I am very grateful that you have included me.

    1. That sounds interesting. I did know that MLK coped with depression, including right up to the end of his too-short life. It is amazing how and what he did with his life in the face of so much adversity and tragedy.

      I am honored to include you here. I so appreciate your thoughtful comments!

  2. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -MLK. May we all continue to be inspired by these wise words and strive to bring light and love into the dark chaos of this world.
