Today, as we honor King’s incredible life and legacy, it’s a huge cliche to say that his work isn’t done.

This is my personal favorite:
“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
We will be taking today off for the holiday and will resume regular posting tomorrow. In the meantime, leave your quotes, reflections, or links in the comments.
