peace in the grass
Beautiful photo by dmax3720. This is an inspiration to do more YARblogging, especially if you live near a busy street corner.
As MLK said, ""It is time for all people of conscience to call upon America to return to her true home of brotherhood and peaceful pursuits. We cannot remain silent as our nation engages in one of history's most cruel and senseless wars.
During these days of human travail we must encourage creative dissenters. We need them because the thunder of their fearless voices will be the only sound stronger than the bast of bombs and the clamor of war hysteria.
Those of us who love Peace must organize as effectively as the war hawks. As they spread the propaganda of war, we must spread the propaganda of Peace. We must combine the fervor of the civil right movement with the Peace movement. We must demonstrate, teach, and preach, until the very foundations of our nation are shaken. We must work unceasingly to lift this nation that we love to a higher destiny, to a new plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humaness.
I have tried to be honest. To be honest is to confront the truth. However unpleasant and incovenient the truth may be, I believe we must expose and face it if we are to achieve a better quality of American life."
Nothing like starting out your day with a cup of coffee and some MLK for inspirational fuel!
