Martin Luther King, Jr., was born 15 January 1929. We here in the USA remember what he stood for, and what he accomplished, on the third Monday of January each year. Of course, when the year begins on Monday, as 2018 will, then the third Monday will be the 15th, but not most years.

This is a day we remember the best and the worst we, humans, can be.

C.S. Lewis

“You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve,” said Aslan. “And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be content.”

C.S. Lewis, Prince Caspian

Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

Good people must always do good. Repay evil with kindness.

It is really as simple as the admonition of the prophet Micah so many generations ago:

He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?

One cannot live justly while injustice surrounds. One must work for the good.

One cannot love kindness without showing it.

One cannot walk humbly while standing aloof.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love ?
In the name of Love!
What more in the name of love ?
