Unfinished Business


Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy, now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children. Now is the time to end the long and desolate night of slumism. Now is the time to have a confrontation between the forces resisting change and the forces demanding change. Now is the time to let justice roll down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.

You mean there was a reason we got a day off of schoool? Good to know.

I remember the first time I saw the pictures of Maya Lin's Civil Rights Memorial at the Southern Poverty Law Center with that beautiful wall of water with King's "mighty stream" quote. It hits you like a fist.
