LIBERTY: Rights & Tolerance | January 17, 2005


A Posting in "Comments From Left Field"

By "The Scarecrow" *

My fellow Friends of Liberty,

Today you celebrate the all-too-short life of a man and also the eternal spirit of humankind.

At thirty-five years of age, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Prize of Peace -- by virtue of his courageous, eloquent calls for non-violence to overcome racism, war, and poverty.

But verily, his message -- to all people -- was even more fundamental: Have faith in God, country, and humanity.

The man was slain. The dream lives on.

Your obedient,

The Scarecrow
