“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied together into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. We are made to live together because of the interrelated structure of reality. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality. We aren’t going to have peace on Earth until we recognize the basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality."
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967 Christmas Sermon on Peace

from E's class visit to the MLK memorial last year

this fantastic piece of history showed up in my inbox last week thanks to a krisel-crazy neighbor (now living in Calgary - but still a fixture in our 'hood!). interesting to see our house considered part of Corval Estates - the development just north of us - predating our Corbin Palms naming.

thanks greg!
