Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 2007

"We did not hesitate to call our movement an army. It was a special army, with no supplies but its sincerity, no uniform but its determination, no arsenal except its faith, no currency but its conscience. It was an army that would move but not maul. It was an army that would sing but not slay."
Martin Luther King, Jr. from his Letter from a Birmingham Jail
And that my friends is tantamount to studying war no more, to beating our swords into shovels, and loving our neighbours as ourselves.

I posted a link to his speech delivered at the Lincoln Memorial on my blog--it's almost twenty minutes long, but it's well worth the listen.
