Dear Adaora and John,
Perhaps you may wish also to quote RFK's quote of Aeschylus in his extraordinary, impromptu speech that broke the news of King's death to a large gathering of African Americans in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God."
Can you see today's leaders showing such depth of understanding, as well as awareness of the wisdom of the classic poets?
