“i had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.
i had hoped that the white moderate would understand that the present tension in the south is a necessary phase of the transition from an obnoxious negative peace, in which the negro passively accepted his unjust plight, to a substantive and positive peace, in which all men will respect the dignity and worth of human personality.
actually, we who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. we merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. we bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with.
like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured.”

Today is Martin Luther King Jr/MLK Day and his legacy and eternal message of freedom and fight for justice could not be more relevant for the present we live in, even after more than 70 years from the start of his career and advocacy for human races justice!
It was impossible for me to pick one of his quotes to address how I feel about the current status of society and worldwide human beings fight for justice.
So this is my selection of just few of his words of wisdom:
*Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
*Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
*The time is always right to do what is right.
*Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty we are free at last.
*Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others”?
*Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
*The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
*In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
*The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
*We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
*I have learned this art: when I have nothing more to say, I stop talking!
An urban art center on 1000 square meters with 3 floors, located in Paris (on the Seine). A great place to eat and drink while seeing some artworks from big artists (JR, Banksy...). Let’s visit!😉
