A Special Message For Our Republican Friends

@ 06:24 PM (103 months, 15 days ago)

Dr. Martin Luther King asked me to pass a message on to you.  Especially those of you who believe we have no obligation to the least among us.  For those of you who believe it's all about "me, me, me" instead of "us" and "we."

The Rev. King wanted me to remind you:

"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial "outside agitator" idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds."
