    that spirit of redemption and forgiveness.  Part of what truth and reconciliation models of dealing with national traumas and humanitarian violations are all about.  A different path that the one of anger and/or vengeance.  

    But Americans for the most part don't play that way, even though that was what the non-violent resistance movement of King and others was all about.

    That part of his work, his movement, his legacy has sort of been forgotten by most Americans today.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
