Bending toward justice. . .our work, our service

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a way of putting things, didn't he? 

He asked tough questions. 

He provided courageous answers. 

The same struggle he faced and battled continues.  The struggle for justice and peace changes, it adapts, it hides, only to surprise us again and again with its hatred, setbacks and disappointments. 

Dr. King always found a way to offer a word of encouragement.  I listen to him whenever I'm tempted to let up or give up.  The piece that follows is among my favorites.
