So much venom and hate going on today. I may be showing my age but next week will mark the 44th anniversary of the assassination of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.. The Summer that follwed this event was a tragedy for our entire nation and right now it seems that no one even remembers why it was such a tragedy.
Not long after the horror in Memphis we witnessed another tragedy on live TV, well we didn't see it but we heard the gunfire and we knew what had happened before even an ambulance arrived on the scene. Bobby Kennedy was far from perfect but he actually gave a damn about what poor people had to deal with, he hated racism and after watching the same news that the rest of us did he saw nothing but disaster in Vietnam.
The events of the last month bring to me the memory of the possibilities we lost when those men were gunned down. Take a minute, listen to this and think about what kind of world we want to leave our kids and their kids. Peace.
