Tipping Point

This little web folder gathers together information related to this very special time, the celebration of MLK's birthday and the inauguration of Obama's second term. It is gathered primarily by Carl & Elisabeth with help from friends. Most of what we are gathering are in "WebLinks", but if we don't find a webpage with it we'll create a webpage here. The search box won't be useful til Google indexes this folder; after that it will allow you to search in this folder and folders below it.

Compassion, courage, imagination, and adaptability are essential to making our world work, essential to our being human beings who have a chance of survival. Letting nature take it's course includes our great beauty but also opens up the consequences of our dark side. King & Lincoln might be the most important Americans who ever lived; their lives teach us about compassion, courage, imagination, and adaptability. This year is the 50th anniversary of two major King speeches: "I have a dream" and "letter from Birmingham Jail". We are nearing the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 13th amendment. The Lincoln movie just released is superb; we highly recommend it.

The Arc is Long, by Theodore Parker
Look at the facts of the world. You see a continual and progressive triumph of the right. I do not pretend to understand the moral universe, the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways. I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience. But from what I see I am sure it bends toward justice.
Source: a sermon by Theodore Parker written in 1857. He was a Unitarian minister later admired by Martin Luther King, Jr.; from: Ten Sermons of Religion.
