Sad Times

I cannot watch this. I remember it too well. I was fortunate to see MLK when he was in DC, giving the sermon at Washington [aka National] Cathedral, just a few days before he was assassinated. There were no vacant seats in the enormous cathedral by the time I arrived. SRO, as they say, and people standing everywhere in the cathedral. It was Lent. Episcopal priests in purple robes led the procession, MLK followed, robed in humbler (Baptist?) black. I was suprised that he was a short man, so large, so tall was he in my mind. And still is. I believe that was his last Sunday sermon. Blessed be.
