A Vision of Justice

"Now is the time to make justice a reality 
for all of God's children." 

 Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28, 2013

Today, on the 50th anniversary of the famous "I Have a Dream" speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Linked without advertising HERE), I ask three questions:

1.  How much progress has been made since August 28, 1963?

2.  What remains to be done to pursue the goal of "justice for all?"  

2.  What can you and I do, today and in our every day lives, to contribute to the answer formulated in question number two?

Medicine for the Entire Self

When we are sick, we Americans tend to want to take a pill that will fix our symptoms.  Then, with our symptoms under control, we keep on doing whatever it is we are already doing, without making any other changes to our habits or lifestyle.
