For a man who only lived to 39 years of age, his work has made a profound impact on our lives. Or did he become the figurehead of his times, much like Lincoln? His actual work was risky but a great lesson in non-violent actions.
amen.hanging out with the boys today with the day off and i will tell them his story...
I love this letter. The expression of his beliefs and his commitment to press on with peaceful demonstrations reminds me of Thomas Paine's COMMON SENSE. Ghandi, MLK and Paine changed the world for the better of all mankind.
All for the better!

An amazing man! We should all strive to follow his example...I thought about him when I walked past a clear cut (almost) area of our mountains...every action we takes has an impact on everything.
Thank you for this post, Vicki.
