"I am not interested in power for power's sake,
but I'm interested in power that is moral,
that is right and that is good."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Our lives begin to end
the day we become silent
about things that matter."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Whatever your life's work is, do it well.
A man should do his job so well
that the living, the dead, and the unborn
could do it no better."

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Always most thoughtful, dear Bren. I'm honored to have you as a dear friend. I'm on my way over ...

As I know you are, dear Beckie, I'm proud to live in this beautiful Country, remembering those who have walked a long, hard road, leaving huge footprints.

Thank you, dear Frances ... Indeed we are living in historic times; still young with much to learn.
