Dr. King Accepts Nobel Peace Prize 45 Years Ago

As President Barak Obama accepts the Nobel Peace Prize today, we remember the acceptance of the same award by another African American, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on this same day 45 years ago. Dr. King went on to defy the US military and speak out against the policies of the government establishment when he later took one of the first public positions opposing the war in Vietnam. Yes, times were different then, but war and the violence of war remains the same, whether in Vietnam or in Afghanistan. We recognize President Obama for the honor of this great award and hope that he will soon stand with Dr, King and other Peace Prize recipients in taking the courageous stand against a war that he ironically finds himself contributing to as commander in chief.
Peace On,
Paul BdeM
