In Memory of Reverend Martin King Jr.

To be accused of A crime  and to stand Alone

To be questioned and to answer for

Once Innocence after all is a Triumph of Truth

On the other hand To accuse someone falsely is

to commit a crime, which is not only a true disgrace

But also a sin against Humanity and One self.

-----with reference to introspective moments at Occupy Boston.

                *      *       *       *       *       *       *     

Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?" 
 
Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" 
 
Vanity asks the question, "Is it popular?" 
 
But, conscience asks the question, "Is it right?" 
 
And there comes a time when one must take a position 
 
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, 
 
but one must take it because one's conscience tells one 
 
that it is right.

------ MLK.
