MLK Day

I’m on the Upaya email list (www.upaya.org) and received this quote & photo this morning.  As it’s all public domain material, I’m posting it here on our blog as well.  You can’t have too much of this kind of thinking.

In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for the forming of “The International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment:”

“…there are some things in our society, some things in our world, to which we should never be adjusted. There are some things concerning which we must always be maladjusted if we are to be people of good will. We must never adjust ourselves to racial discrimination and racial segregation. We must never adjust ourselves to religious bigotry. We must never adjust ourselves to economic conditions that take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few. We must never adjust ourselves to the madness of militarism, and the self-defeating effects of physical violence.”
