Mindful Monday: The problem is far from solved

"Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

"Let me not leave you with a false impression. The problem is far from solved."

--Martin Luther King, Jr., December, 1964, from Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech
