MLK Said

The past four years, the country has been subjected to civil unrest, not so peaceful protests, some say riots, from many quarters of American and international societies. I prefer to view MLK’s thoughts below from the perspective of a larger world, if not Gandhi, perspective. Perhaps, on this holiday, people should focus on the sage words of Martin Luther King when he wrote,

“I will always continue to say that riots are socially destructive and self-defeating. I’m still convinced that non-violence is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom and justice. I feel that violence will only create more social problems than they will solve. So I will continue to condemn riots, and continue to say to my brothers and sisters that this is not the way, and continue to affirm there is another way.”

            Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
