Maya Angelou, Martin L King On Evil And Injustice

0eee8-img_2047Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014)

Throughout our nervous history, we have constructed pyramidic towers of evil, oftentimes in the name of good.

🎂Happy Birthday Maya Angelou  (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) In Memoriam🌹


1c045-martin-luther-kingMartin L King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality… Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

🌹Martin L. King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) In Memoriam🌹
