Bio
Right now I am someone who is inundating herself in the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and who is trying to embody the profound philosophy of nonviolence, for I do believe that love is humankind’s “most potent weapon for personal and social transformation.” Along “the way of life,” Dr. King wrote, “someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can be done only by projecting the ethics of love to the center of our lives.” Such a task requires that we look deeply within to discern as well as to transform the myriad ways violence guides our thoughts, acts and speech, for it is “only through an inner spiritual transformation” that “we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.” It is my humble desire to address here, with a loving spirit, “the evils of the world.” Feel free to help me along the way.

“All types of conniving methods are still being used to prevent Negroes from becoming registered voters. The denial of this sacred right is a tragic betrayal of the highest mandates of our democratic traditions and it is democracy turned upside down.”

“So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself. I cannot make up my mind – it is made up for me. I cannot live as a democratic citizen, observing the laws I have helped to enact – I can only submit to the edict of others.” (Martin Luther King, Jr., May 17, 1957)
