I got this from the NAMI facebook feed and was moved enough to share it. It’s a great quote putting words to a sentiment all too easy to forget, and Lord knows I’m guilty of it.

I’m not a huge fan of Martin Luther King Jr’s personal life (but then, who is, decades after a man’s death when nothing is personal and scandal is a best-seller), but as a figure, as a leader, he’s on the short list of people I genuinely admire as a hero. His firm, gentle strength resonates today, not only for the black community, but anyone crying for justice.
