A Way Through the Darkness

To this nation you were like a voice in the wilderness crying, "Make the paths straight," a light refusing to be put out by the darkness, a tree planted by the water of life and unmoved by adversity, the stature of your silhouette still looms in our dark landscape showing a way down the road of peace and reconciliation. Thank you for going ahead of us Dr. King. May we all get there with you.

Yes indeedy! Yesterday's concert celebration was beautifully rich in reference and symbolism. How lucky we are to see it!

Perfect photograph to go with your moving words, Kim. Today, somehow seems a more important MLK day than normal with the immensity of what is about to happen tomorrow. Sometimes it's hard to breath - it's such a moment in history. May we all get there with Dr. King - I so agree.

This captures the sense of incubation that this country is experiencing now. The hazy brightness of possibility. Excellent entry, Kim. Thanks.
