I’m a big fan of a quote that Martin Luther King Jr. once used, “…the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” but implicit in that statement are two things. First, is that at some points the arc is disrupted so that the naked greed and lust for power that men have is laid bare to remind us how far we have come and how far we must go and we are living in such a time. Second, while the statement is true it is not a passive one and requires us to do work to continue to bend the arc towards justice.
Happy MLK Day. Raise the standard. Follow the banner. The tortoise always wins.
