Martin Luther King Jr. on Vietnam and Dreams

My niece sent me the first link, Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam, which is as relevant today as it was then.

And for the second, I Have A Dream, came, of course, at “the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation” against the “flames of withering injustice” and “the long night of [our] captivity”

The third is Miri Ben-Ari’s Symphony of Brotherhood, an uplifting and haunting piece of music that resonates deeply with me.  I’m not a big fan of music videos, and this one is not particularly well done, so I listen to it with the video in the background.  It’s the music that speaks.
