Because we are your mountain top people

Dr. Matin Luther King said: "​I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

Dear Martin, thank you for leaving us:
A legacy of truth,
A legacy of hope,
A legacy of love,
A legacy of righteous action.

We are going up to the mountain top,
Because, you asked us to,
Because we believe Love wins,
Because, we are a righteous people,
Because, our patriotic duty compels us,
Because, faith compels us,
Because, humanity compels us,
Because, even if we all did not see it then,
We see it now,
We are your mountain top people.

Love, peace, and hope to all you beautiful mountain top people,
Jesse The Walking Man Turner

If you like to listen to the song that inspired my walk this's Patty Griffin's " I want up to the Mountain, because you asked me too" tribute
