“I refuse to accept the view . . . that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.” – Martin Luther King Jr

One morning in Hartford, Connecticut, my mother and I heard the car radio announcement that King had been killed in Memphis. She was driving me to school on her way to work. Mid-morning, the principal of my inter-racial school urged us to go home. My girlfriend and I wandered into a service being held in his honor at the nearby Saint Joseph Cathedral. It felt like g-d had died that day. ~ DF
