    This recent cratemoommion was especially poignant for me. Until now, I was attached to the passion of celebrating a dynamic figure that lead the civil rights movement. This year, for the first time, I connected to the struggle and commitment of Martin and many others who sacrificed to make sure that all people where treated with respect and dignity with all of the inalienable rights suggested in our constitution. I can not even imagine having to withstand the violence and humiliation they experienced to make our lives better. But, then again how could they not? We were already experiencing horrors and indignities unimaginable. But, what really struck me was Martin’s final focus, poverty. In today’s economic downturn and the left’s focus on austerity, Martin’s goal to rid a powerful and rich nation of poverty and policies that disenfranchise is so tangible. These is our time to pick up where Martin left off and challenge the status quo by first being our brothers and sisters keepers. It starts with compassion. Leadership and change begins in our communities.

    W.C.Maybe so, but I read him for the same reasons as I read DailyKos and myDD. I want to nsderntaud their view point, so that I can rebut and persuade. Occasionally, they also make good points.
