"We are witnessing in our day the birth of a new age, with a new structure of freedom and justice.
Now, as we face the fact of this new, emerging world, we must face the responsibilities that come along with it. A new age brings with it new challenges....
First, we are challenged to rise above the narrow confines of our individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. The new world is a world of geographical togetherness. This means that no individual or nation can live alone. We must all learn to live together, or we will be forced to die together.
...Through our scientific genius we have made of the world a neighborhood; now through our moral and spiritual genius we must make of it brotherhood. We are all involved in the single process. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. We are all links in the great chain of humanity. . . We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilization."
-- Martin Luther King. Jr.
