Forty-four years ago today--and a year after he publicly turned against the war in Vietnam--Martin Luther King was assassinated. Hear now the words of our slain prophet, the Isaiah of our age:
"The judgment of God is upon us today. And we could go right down the line and see that something must be done—and something must be done quickly. We have alienated ourselves from other nations so we end up morally and politically isolated in the world."
--Martin Luther King, Jr., Remaining Awake Through A Great Revolution
