Writing into the Light…

Finding my way with words…

The Journey to the Promised Land


My words will never surpass his…  Some of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.:

A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.

He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’


I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.

  1. I still remember watching his “I’ve got a dream” speech on the nightly news and realizing THIS was history in the making. Thank you for posting this.

    • As important as his influence was on the Civil Right Movement, MLK was a great teacher of nonviolence and civil disobedience. He was definitely one of my heroes as a young adult. Looking back over history, his influence on America is truly awe inspiring! Thanks for reading.
