41 years

This has nothing to do with knitting.

41 years ago, April 4 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave this speech. It speaks more eloquently to our current position than anything I have heard in the last five years and more.

If you go to the site, click on the video for the spoken version. Scroll down a bit and ignore the film clips; they just distract from the power of the spoken word. The written transcript on the page is longer than the spoken version, but I think not so compelling. It's worth reading. But first, just listen.
