A Tribute for Martin Luther King
Lord, who can be trusted with power,
and who may act in your place?
Those with a passion for justice,
who speak the truth from their hearts;
who have let go of selfish interests
and grown beyond their own lives;
who see the wretched as their family
and the poor as their flesh and blood.
They alone are impartial
and worthy of the people's trust.
Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
and their kindness endures forever.
(Martin Luther King's birthday fell during the time my computer was down. Thus I am posting this blog now, a bit late, but very heartfelt. I received the contents through another internet site.)
(A Book of Psalms, translations by Stephen Mitchell)
