So as 2007 begins to chug along, promising many battles, both political and personal, I leave my readers with these words from Dr. King:
When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.Kujanblog wishes everyone a happy and contemplative Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Update: At least one progressive is paying attention.
I see no problem in claiming that Dr. King was a progressive. He certainly wasn't a conservative, no matter how hard right-wing bloggers will try to convince you otherwise. Digby takes a look at how conservatives really felt about Dr. King in his own time.
