One thing that always perturbs me is as we come to celebrate the life and living of Dr Martin Luther King, one of the things we can say with alarm since the legalisation of the holiday is that Dr King has been reduced to the syrupy sweet of the Hallmark cards genre where he is no longer prophetic. He no longer speaks to the nation and he no longer causes us to speak to the nation in ways that shake the foundations.
Stand up and say that the spirit of Martin Luther King is alive today
