No photo today, just a song.

ed. Here's an excerpt. "Why? (The King of Love is Dead)" by Nina Simone.

"Will the murders never cease?
Are they men or are they beasts.
What do they ever hope, ever hope to gain?
Will my country fall or stand up tall?
Is it too late for us all?
And did Martin Luther King just die in vain?

Cause he'd seen the mountain top
And he knew he could not stop
Always living with the threat of death ahead
Folks you'd better stop and think, cause we're headed for the brink
What will happen now that he is dead?

He was for equality, for all people, you and me
Full of love and good will, hate was not his way
He was not a violent man
Tell me folks if you can
Just why, why was he shot down the other day?

This song always brings tears to my eyes.
