The Man by Anthony Freda 2012

Martin Luther King’s Ghandi inspired ideas of non-violent resistance to tyranny, war and oppression are a constant source of inspiration to me.

It’s incredible for me to think that around the time I was born, the chances of a black man being elected president were zero.

We obviously have come a long way in our attitudes towards race and equality, but have a long way to go before we approach Dr. King’s dreams of peace and personal liberty for all.

He said “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on their military than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

Last year we spent more money on our military budget than China, Russia and the next 12 nations Combined.  We are currently waging war, either overtly or covertly, in 8 countries.
