I took a break from my weekly post to view the march commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's historic march on Washington. Just as happened then, this march that took place on Saturday was a peaceful one. Of the estimated quarter million people who participated in 1963, only four arrests were made. So far this year no incidents have been reported. This is a true testimony of the proper use of freedom and an honor to the man who fought so hard for freedom and equality.

A few years ago I wrote a post on a similar topic. You can read it here.
