In the Talmud, that ancient Hebrew book, it says that ‘a dream
that is not understood
is like a letter not opened.’
Today it is time to open that letter we put off reading…
it is the letter of hope
and love in all its forms.
Fifty years ago I remember hearing and seeing this speech on T.V.
It moves me as much now as it did then.
When I think of Martin Luther King Jr. I feel love in my heart
which no one can take away.
No one can kill love.
Hatred you can burn to the ground
with a cool glass of water.
- Evelyn M. Wallace
