"let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King..."

"...and recognize that there are ties between us
all men and women, living on the earth
ties of hope and love, sister and brotherhood
that we are bound together in our desire to see the world become 
a place in which our children can grow free and strong
we are bound together by the task that stands before us
and the road that lies ahead
we are bound and we are bound

there is a feeling like the clenching of a fist
there is a hunger in the center of the chest
there is a passage through the darkness and the mist
and though the body sleeps the heart will never rest.
shed a little light, oh Lord
so that we can see..."
- the one and only James Taylor.
