“I’ve seen the Promised Land…”

April 3, 1968…

Even in our sleep
Pain, which cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart

April 4, 1968…

“I may not get there with you…”

…as he stood on the balcony of his motel room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was scheduled to lead a protest march in support of striking sanitation workers of that city, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.

Until in our despair
Against our will
Comes wisdom
Through the awful grace of God

He was 39 years old.

“For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and distrust of the injustice of such an act against all white people I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my own family killed and he was killed by a white man…”

Tame the savageness of man
and make gentle the life of this world.Aeschylus

On each and every one of you
Each and every day!

“And there came to be evening and there came to be morning…”

That’s life today!
