Today is Martin Luther King Day. I led a bike ride (pic attached) to Dr. King's tomb [in Atlanta, Georgia]; it was the 5th year we have done it. I even read the following King quotes.
I have moved to break the betrayal of my own silences and to speak from the burnings of my own heart. ... I knew I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today my own government.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
More later. Got to go feed the goats before it rains. Love, Neil
