WHEN JUSTICE DOES ITS PUBLIC PART
IT EDUCATES THE HUMAN HEART
THE ERRING HEART IN TURN
MUST DO ITS PRIVATE PART AND LEARN
Poet Laureate 1991
April 4, 1968 I was 4 years old. I was playing in the kitchen when I heard my Mother and Grandma screaming and crying. Naturally I cried too though I didn't understand why. The evening news was broadcasting the assassination of Dr. King... part of me always remembered this as a dream until as an adult I asked Mom, who confirmed everything the way it was. That night people cried, some were angry. Now... I won't elaborate... But I understand some of those feelings...
On April 4, 2008 I discovered that this photo made Explore #200 on Flickr.
As a man who doesn't believe in luck or coincidence, I feel the warmth of this blessing in my heart. And so I dedicate my 32nd Explore photograph to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
