Fight For Your Peace: Remembering Dr. King

When planning for peace, prepare for war. Thanks movies this statement has been raised to dramatic proportions, but it is so unbelievably true. People who meet me sometimes believe I'm mellow or don't sense the urgency of a situation, but when you've been battling beasts, swatting away butterflies is nothing.

Speaking of planning for peace, I'd be remiss not to mention the significance of this day: the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Like Ghandi he was a peacemaker who dug his heels in and battled a war that erupted around his actions to bring to the national stage the reality that all people, regardless of skin color, socioeconomic status and so on, are created equal and should be treated with equal dignity and afforded equal opportunities.
