The article linked below is a wonderful, powerful reflection on Dr. King, so perfect for this season and next week's 50th anniversary of a national tragedy. Easter is centered on the proposition that amidst deepest heartbreak can come hope. Here's how that plays out in this article as we face these anniversaries: "To idealists of the 21st century, it may seem that on many social, economic and ethical fronts the country has come to what seems a futureless halt, just as the museum’s civil rights story does. But rather than exit the scene in weariness or frustration, we would do well to go back in time. If we stay alert, we can find instruction there."
