Dr. King: Nonviolence is the Most Powerful Weapon

I had the honor of visiting Dr. Martin Luther Kings home and historic site in Atlanta a few months back. It was quite a learning experience. For one his family was highly educated, and included a degree holding grandmother. In case you aren't aware that was a rarity, and even rarer for an African-American woman during her generation. Also Dr. King was a humble man, and at one point did not want to buy a house because he was afraid people would think it showed he was profiting from the movement he was a big part of. That's the type of humble thinking absent from many civil leaders toady.

Nonetheless his message in this video is something I feel gets lost on people. I think we forget in every generation the truth to this message. Nonviolence IS the most powerful weapon.
