Never since his assassination in 1968 have I felt the absence of Martin Luther King more acutely. Where are today's voices of moral outrage? Where is the leadership willing to stand up and say: Enough! We've sullied ourselves enough.

But Bob Herbert brought home the point for me. We must be the voices of moral outrage for our country. We have no Martin Luther King for our time. We must all speak for him and express the values and morality that he espoused and embodied. Our values. We must do it together.
