Martin Luther King and “I Have a Dream”

Dear Pope Francis,

OK, I’m a little late with this, but we passed the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech last month. Given the quote I posted yesterday, I thought you might also be interested in this piece that Drew Dellinger, along with his father Walter, wrote to mark that occasion.

I think it bears a read, given recent events.

Your friend,

Nonviolence

Dear Pope Francis,

I thought this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. was appropriate today.

“Therefore I suggest that the philosophy and strategy of nonviolence become immediately a subject for study and for serious experimentation in every field of human conflict, by no means excluding the relations between nations…. We still have a choice today; nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation. This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos and community.”

This is just one poweful quote from a powerful speech.

Thanks to Drew Dellinger for posting this quote on Facebook.

Your friend,

Kevin
