...non violence

On this day in 1957 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous "Power of Nonviolence" speech at the University of California, Berkeley.
Dr. King was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. Today's photo was sent to me from NO.It is the final picture in a series of how, after the tornado in Greensburg , Ks., homeless animals were left to survive. One by one, rescuers found them and led them to a car. All strangers to each other, see how well they got along immediately? Mother Nature can be violent, but we don't have to be.

"Be gentle to all and stern with yourself."
Saint Teresa of Avila
