Martin Luther King Jr NYWTS“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. from A Christmas Sermon on Peace 1967
