Coincidence? Hmmm...

This week we celebrate the legacy of Dr. King. This week many of us are frustrated that not everyone gets that we are in this deflating lifeboat of a city together. So I think it's cool that I happened to get an email today with a Dr. King quote eloquently expressing that sentiment:

"In a real sense all life is inter-related.

All persons are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.

I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be,

and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.

This is the inter-related structure of reality."

--Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
