Martin Luther King -- The Peace Advocate

I often wonder what our world would be like today if Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, and John Kennedy had not been assassinated in the prime of their lives and as they attempted to steer this country on a course of greatness.

In spite of folks attempting to box Martin Luther King into a box labeled Civil Rights Advocate only...King broke out of the box to speak out forcefully and passionately against the Vietnam War.

Our 1964 Nobel Peace Laureate's words on peace are appropriate today, unfortunately.

Every American should read Martin Luther King's speech
"Beyond Vietnam--A Time to Break Silence" today.
