The horrific shooting in Dallas should make us appreciate the efforts of Martin Luther King Jr.
He probably felt and surely knew about the rage inside so many African Americans that was a product of past and continuing bigotry.
His leadership and legacy of non-violent protest may have diverted some and perhaps many from the tragic path chosen by the Dallas shooter.
The peaceful demonstrators of Black Lives Matter are a living memorial to his efforts.
Never miss a local story.
