DEAR READERS: Today we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -- the great American civil rights leader, martyred in 1968, who dedicated his life to furthering equal rights for all Americans.
When Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, he said: "Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."
With bloodshed and violence still such destructive forces in this world, there is much to be learned from his insight, his wisdom and his example. -- ABBY
