Guidance on How to Respond in the Highest (from MLK)

I have been deeply touched by how so many have been inquiring of themselves how we can best respond from the light to the tragedy in Arizona.  I received an email from Common Cause today with this beautiful quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“When evil men (and women) plot,
good men (and women) plan.

When evil men (and women) burn and bomb,
good men (and women) must build and bind.

When evil men (and women) shout ugly words of hatred,
good men (and women) commit themselves to the glories of love.

Where evil men (and women) would seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo,
good men (and women) must seek to bring into being a real order of justice.”
– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    It is, indeed, up to us. But the way does not often open easily.
