Right to Choose (Wednesday)


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.

Good advice for those marching in Washington today, good advice for all of us.bless soul pic
