On April 4, 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. was fatally shot outside a hotel in Memphis. I'm not going to say much about this tragic event; just that King led a movement, that was both civil and divine, and was used by God to help usher in a little more of the Kingdom of God. Pride: In the Name of Love, by U2 is a great song about Dr. King.
And this song, by Nina Simone, Why?: The King of Love is Dead, is a raw, emotional testament to those days.
Today, 46 years after his death, Martin's life still testifies to God's Kingdom of love that continues to break into this world. Amen.
