MLK Day and March for Life fall in the same week this year. The two intersect over non-violent protest and focus on our right to choose our own responses.
On December 19, 1956, Dr. King offered a set of suggestions related to the integration of buses (here). Two items stand out for me:
Be quiet but friendly:
proud but not arrogant;
joyous but not boisterous.
Be loving enough to absorb evil
and understanding enough to turn an enemy into a friend.
