I’ll never forget the first time I read Letter From a Birmingham Jail, in high school. I was studying the essay’s superb rhetorical structure, but the vehemence and beautiful phrasing of MLK’s argument for compassion and human connectedness floored me. Re-reading his letter today, I am sadly struck by how applicable his words still are, for so many. (If you haven’t done so, look up the letter and read it now.) Distrust of those different than we has been encouraged for political gain. It is up to each of us to hold ourselves accountable to MLK’s words and remember that we are, “all tied in a single garment of destiny.” #mlkjrday #mlkjr #martinlutherkingjr .
