Happy Martin Luther King Day

"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an extremist of love; he was a militant for tenderness. He was a radical for sweetness. He was willing to talk publicly, openly, explicitly, unapologetically about love and love defined as steadfast commitment to the well-being of others. Because of that commitment, King was faced with unbelievable hurt and unbelievable sorrow. But he never allowed that sorrow to have the last word. We look back, in all of his rich humanity, and say, we miss you. We love you. We need you. Happy Birthday."
- Cornel West
