My Daughter’s Recollection of MLK

Of course, my daughter wasn’t born till 1993, and I wasn’t until 1970 for that matter. However, now at the ambitious and optimistic age of 20, Cynthia has a fond admiration for the great leader, Martin Luther King. Her favorite MLK quote is…

MLK memorial

“Let us be Christian in all our actions. But I want to tell you this evening that it is not enough for us to talk about love, love is one of the pivotal points of the Christian faith. There is another side called justice. And justice is really love in calculation. Justice is correcting that which revolts against love.”

Isn’t this an interesting perspective? Love and justice are noble, but not typically thought to be the same. Justice is correcting that which revolts against love. That’s a quote worth memorizing.
