    I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsom and jetsom in the river of life unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.

    I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

    I believe that even amid today's motor bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men.

    I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.

    "And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid."

    I still believe that we shall overcome.

    -Martin Luther King, Jr.
    December 10, 1964

    "Sleep, sleep tonight
    And may your dreams be realised.
    If the thunder cloud passes rain
    So let it rain, rain down on he.
    So let it be.
    So let it be.

    Sleep, sleep tonight
    And may your dreams be realised.
    If the thunder cloud passes rain
    So let it rain, let it rain
    Rain down on he."

    - Bono '84

    Some people don't see the significance, but I think we as a country are in agood place right now.

    Lately you have seen alot about resegregation and "Affirmative Action" politics at schools, but I still think we are so much more closer to a common intelectual unity. Not to ruin the mood, but my experience has been that some African-Americans still expect me to pay back for something that happened generations ago. My family wasn't even on this continent at the time! For anyone looking for a different insight than the norm, check out "Barbershop". This is the movie that Jesses Jackson asked for an apology, then the film makers asked for an apology from Jesse Jackson for asking for an apology! But the film really does put alot into perspective.

    Barbershop is a great flick...

    It's always fun to share a birthday with the great MLK...Hopefully, one day soon, we will live in that world where character matters more than skin color...
