Sometimes I Wonder



Windswept, Pennypack Ecological Trust, 
Huntingdon Valley, PA

I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered
something he will die for, 
he isn't fit to live. 
Martin Luther King, Jr., Speech in Detroit, June 23, 1963

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

Icicle Bridge, Pennypack Ecological Trust, 
Huntingdon Valley, PA

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963




Sometimes I wonder, 
if anyone ever stops to listen to what the man said.  
Or, if in our sincere ignorance, 
our collective conscientious stupidity 
has put other words in the man's mouth.

Such a good question. My class has been studying these quotes and what they mean today. Great words we should head more.

Good Morning, Rebecca

Dr. King's words and life had a huge impact the course of history in your country and his influence extended beyond it to mine.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photographs at Sunlit Sunday and for honouring the crucial work and memory of Dr. King.

When one offers quotes from some of his speeches it is good to know his spirit is still alive with many.

Thank you for sharing some of Dr. King's quotes. It's so easy to just remember him for certain words and not the depth of many others. Your shots are just awesome. I always enjoy seeing where you are being led to photograph....

Your photos are so beautiful and the quotes are moving. As a black man who was born in the 60's I'm very thankful to MLK. He help make this country a better place even though I think our country has gone downhill in other areas.
