Good morning Paul. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many words of wisdom that fell on deaf ears during his lifetime. As they gain credence over the years we realize how much better off the world would be if we listened earlier. Enjoy your day.

Given the divisions in our society these days, I miss Martin Luther King, Jr. His words continue to stand the test of time. Happy Wednesday, Paul!

Love is what matters most in the world and I certainly would love to wind down for the evening with a scene like that to view!

Hi Paul- I wish these words were spoken every day to anyone who would listen. Hate makes hate grow even more.

Hi Paul,

No truer words were ever spoken.  What will it take to get us back on the path of love and positivity?
