83 Candles on the Reverend's Cake

"A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan."

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. January 15, 1929 ~ April 4, 1968

If only.
In a better world.
Don't I wish that he could have been celebrating his 83rd birthday today, surrounded by his family.
Don't I wish that he could've been on one of the Sunday morning programs today, being asked his opinion about the candidates and the issues confronting voters in this here election year.

But no.
