April 4

The closer to the mountaintop we get, the heavier and more subtle the burden becomes.

All we can do is to keep climbing.

There have been some great websites and commentary over the last few days. Two stick in my mind:
1. I was listening to an NPR interview of a friend and contemporary of MLK (can't remember who) and he said that we should remember King not as the perfect person we sometimes see in the media but as a person with flaws who overcame those failings to still be one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century.
2. David Plotz of Slate mused about what would have happened if the Palestinians would have had a King. Not a king but a King. These kinds of ruminations about the past are always difficult but it could be an interesting conversation starter at your usual Saturday night party.
