Stone of Hope…I Do Believe



Dancing Heart participants have been thinking over the words of Dr. Martin Luther King this week and offering some thoughts of their own. One man got a hitch in his voice singing “We Shall Overcome” after recounting how his own father, a banker, lost everything in 1929 and wasn’t able to earn a dime to support his family for three years. A woman recounted trying to make ends meet as a single mom with five kids in the early 60’s.

Words of wisdom poured out:  “Love God, love one another, ACT that way”, “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”, “Do what you can with what you have.”

People from all walks of life shared movement, music, and emotion as we shared the widespread human experience of finding the stone of hope in a mountain of despair.

    heard a Martin Luther King Jr. quote today that I really love~~~!

    “Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that.

    Hate cannot drive out hate. Only Love can do that.”
