In honor of DR MARTIN LUTHER KING

Today is of course the best day to honor the best. I wish to post a letter from Thich Nhat Hanh to Dr Martin Luther King which must surely have been one of his inspirations to Nominate Thich for the Nobel Peace Prize...

Exactly one year later, Martin Luther King was dead. From the mountaintop, he had perhaps seen and named too much — for his time, if not for ours.
One more thing, though.

Just three months before this amazing — and obviously still monumentally relevant — speech at Riverside Church, King nominated his friend and colleague Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize of 1967. He wrote to the Nobel Institute (in part):

Because no honor is more respected than the Nobel Peace Prize, conferring the Prize on Nhat Hanh would itself be a most generous act of peace. It would remind all nations that [people] of good will stand ready to lead warring elements out of an abyss of hatred and destruction. It would re-awaken [people] to the teach
ing of beauty and love found in peace. [And] It would help to revive hopes for a new order of justice and
harmony.
As it turned out, despite King’s eloquent efforts, no peace prize was awarded in 1967.
But let us, today, carry on
the hopes and dreams
for the revolution in values needed
to one day establish
a new order of justice and harmony
grounded
in the beauty and compassion
forever found
in the ways of peace and in love.
