Thank you for sharing Martin Luther King, Jr.'s LETTER FROM A BIRMINGHAM JAIL, written while incarcerated and, yet, still calling for compassion among all human beings.

"First, King’s letter reveals the moral foundations of civility."

"Treating others with decency, dignity, and respect is nonnegotiable because they are our fellow human beings".

Martin Luther King, Jr. understood God and His primary expectation of His human creation. True Love of God reflects, at the very least, respect for the dignity of each person who was created in the image of God, Himself. We all have the "spark" of God which, when nurtured, has the potential to be turned into a beautiful flame.🔥

Respect for one another does not demand agreement, just treatment that does no harm, physically, mentally or spiritually .

Yes, we have a long way to go to fulfill this expectation as a Society, but by beginning with just one person at a time, those in our own communities or those we meet daily on the street or even on ZOOM, 😊 we can fulfill what God has directed us to make for a Civil Society.

20 "If we say we love God, but hate others, we are liars. For we cannot love God, whom we have not seen, if we do not love others, whom we have seen."

~ 1 John 4
