Andrew Young with King at
Chicago's airport in the 1960s

Deed
King tried to get home for holidays and family birthdays, but it was often impossible. “I’m away from home 25 to 27 days a month,” King lamented at the height of the Civil Rights Movement in 1965.

Thought
Martin, said his wife Coretta, “had this terrific conflict about the duty to his family and the duty to his fellow man, and he really recognized that he had this obligation to both. But if you are going to serve humanity you’ve got to neglect your family to some extent.” (David Garrow, Bearing the Cross)

Devoted to continuing the work of Gandhi and King, Auroras Voice invites you to join us in observing the 2012 Season for Nonviolence. Every weekday from January 30 to April 4, we will endeavor to send a brief original message highlighting the words, thoughts, and deeds of Gandhi, King, or one of their peace and justice colleagues.
