I spent my day with approximately 7000 fellow resident's of the World House (in Seattle, Washington) celebrating the birth (and incredibly full life) of a great peacemaker and possibly the greatest prophetic voice of modern times. I have hesitated to share this visual as I do not want to be disrespectful in any way. That being said, the contrasts between these two people are staggering. For President Obama to invoke Martin Luther King Jr. in any way after the past four years is unconscionable. To earn that Nobel Peace Prize President Obama needs to start living out the words he speaks; otherwise it is merely empty rhetoric.
Happy Birthday Dr. King. We will hold Obama's feet to the proverbial fire. He will either live up to his promises (such as those in his famous Prague speech on nuclear weapons) or get burned. We will uphold the rich legacy you left for us. We are in it for the long haul.
There is certainly no room for drones in Dr. King's dream!
