I love the stories, the people, the intrigue, struggles and the triumph. They all inspire me. History shows me that nothing happens in […]

Finding the Words

Sometimes, there are no words I just saw the movie, Selma, and was moved by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King. That was no surprise. His words were relevant in the 1960s and they remain relevant now. Again, this is not a surprise. Dr. King was one of the most quotable people in history […]

The third step on the Road with King: Does integration really exist in America?

Continuing down the road taken by Dr. Martin Luther King, I am driven by the need to delve into the ethical foundations of my beliefs. I have been reading more of King’s speeches (no pun intended) and I have discovered that he broke down the issues and presented them to the protesters. Back then, the […]
