Every time I walk down this pathway, I instantly feel warmth and a sense of protection. This is what nature does for us, every single day. Aside from the perpetual wonder and fascination; it’s our life support system. Our natural world deserves so much more reverence & respect.

First read today’s NYT Op-Ed by on MLK’s criticisms of Northern white liberals, then read this thread for more on how our sanitized fable of civil rights history sees U.S. democracy as a kind of a miraculous moral “self-cleaning oven” (in JT’s 🔥🔥phrase)

King didn't call for peace at any cost, he called for non-violent direct action. There is a difference. "If peace means a willingness to be exploited economically, dominated politically, humiliated and segregated, I don't want peace." MLK, 1956

Until there’s truth, shared in courageous conversations, art, media, government, faith communities, education and in the marketplace, there will be no authentic reconciliation. Let’s gird ourselves with love, , and go after a more just, peaceful, humane world.

“I don’t mean to say ‘just,’ but that’s what it is. We’ll carry prayers where that pipeline crossed our sacred grounds. We want to heal the land; maybe we want to heal ourselves, too.” 2/2

Someone else asked Angel when the march would start, and she corrected him. “It’s not a march,” she said. “It’s not a march and it’s not a protest. It’s a walk.” “It’s just a prayer walk,” said, as the group circled up around the fire... 1/2

Quote from Martin Luther’s “Open Letter on Translation” regarding his revolutionary translation of the Bible from Latin into common, spoken German. Funny how with a few simple edits, it also mirrors the foundation for public . Something you might appreciate, .

He was a purveyor of peace, but it is contrary to the authentic King to call for peace without being a doer and seeker of justice. He said, “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”

He was not passive. Nonviolence is not passive. It is active, principled, love-centered noncooperation with evil.

“I'd like somebody to mention that day that Martin Luther King, Jr. tried to give his life serving others… And I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity.” Thank you, Dr. King. On today, your 90th birthday, we can say that you did more than try.
