Inspirational quotes of Martin Luther King, Jr💖🙏(and a repost of Light in Life’s blog which inspired me to create this post)

MLK Jr was a Bodhisattva in my opinion 💖🙏

I wish MLK’s spirit was present in our world today, it seems that his message of love, unity, equality, integrity and peace has been forgotten; especially in the United States.

      2. Wow, I don’t know why I didn’t see this sooner, sorry my friend. Yes I loved your quotes and you are so right MLK was an amazing man with such a magnificent light. Sometimes it is almost overwhelming to think of the deaths during that time frame and wondering what or whom was responsible.

        I hope things are settling down where you are Judy. Things have gotten bad in both NC and SC again. We did our weekly outing today but we were grateful to get it over with and managed to make it fun.

        Do you have any great movies you could recommend? We largely prefer foreign films to US films. Did you see OKJA?

        We enjoyed it but it was hard to watch at times. The young lead actress, was precious and very talented. The actors often are more believable, which makes it easier to relate to them. Now they are making US actors look 20 years younger. Soon they will just use photoshopped version of young actors and they won’t even age. KUBO and the two strings sure made me cry. One of the sweetest and more emotionally packed movies then I have seen in a long time.

        Stay safe and be blessed dear Judy. Love to you and all your loved ones. 🌺🌸🤗❤️ Joni

      3. Yes I think the assassinations during the 60s might have been mob hits, many conspiracy theories about them. Have you seen “Chappaquiddick”? It’s no Netflix, it’s a bio pic about Ted Kennedy’s drunk driving scandal that killed a his friend, seemed like he was having an affair with. It was a very well done film, that I recommend. I also liked “Kill the Messenger” starring Jeremy Renner, great acting and based on a true story of Gary Webb, a Pulitzer winning journalist who tried to expose CIA backing of cocaine trafficking. I used to watch a lot of films but haven’t seen many lately that I want to see. I heard Okja was good but I haven’t seen it yet. I like stop motion animation, I’ll try to find Kubo.

        I’m sorry to hear that things are getting bad again where you are; it’s getting bad here too in CA. I have to wear a mask at work and now they’re getting us clear visors, I’m tired of the bio hazzard costume. Why is it ok to sit outdoors on the sidewalk to eat lunch without a mask while a server wears a mask and pedestrians walk by with or without masks, it doesn’t make sense to me and I think they’re close schools again. For months every night there are illegal fireworks going off from 9pm to 2am, crazy where I live. Love and blessings to you, Joni😘🌹🙏💖
