Martin Luther King Jr. and Vietnam

I am sending a huge and shout out to Jack and Jill Politics for featuring a video by Martin Luther King and his opposition to the war in Vietnam. I won’t go into detail about why I oppose this war but if you listen to this speech and replace Vietnam with Iraq, his speech is even more poignant. One quote I pulled from the speech is that the “A nation that year after year, spends more money on military defense, than on programs of social uplift, is approaching spiritual death.” Meditate on this as you prepare for Memorial Day.

Stay up fam,

Brandon Q.
