On This Day, Reminders Of Lessons Not Learned

Which of these seems out of place?

I can't help wondering if we have any business celebrating the life of a man who's wisdom we refuse to heed.

"Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love."

                    - Martin Luther King Jr.

I wonder what Dr. King would have to say about our doings in the Middle East if he were alive today?

So sad that he isn't.
