Letter from a Birmingham Jail

Today is Martin Luther King day and I want to pay tribute to this giant of a man.

'We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.'

Martin Luther King's words are just as relevant today as then. I am thinking of those governments who carry out systematic abuse of their citizens, the Arab Spring protestors and those in Africa who live under the rule of a tyrant. Good people need to speak up.
