Martin Luther King, Jr (January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968)

There are three ascending levels of mourning: with tears — that is the lowest. With silence — that is higher. And with a song — that is the highest. (via Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel)

Thank you for reminding me why the date April 4th touched my heart in a sad way. I couldn't remember, and I didn't see any references to Martin Luther King, Jr anywhere yesterday. Now I know. Now I remember.

Yes, thank you for the reminder. A great man cut down in his prime.

Thank you for this. I feel out of sorts and couldn't figure out why. Perhaps this is why. Thank you for the song.
