Her Story Reminds Us Why We Need Another Village 


She walks to the river and begins her morning routine. She splashes cold water on her face, and brushes her teeth. She grabs a bar from her pack, and wets her parched and sunburned lips with the last couple ounces of water from her bottle. She begins to gather her things. Some will fit in her daypack. Others can be stored in the brush beneath a nearby tree. She’s lost quite a bit of stuff out here and returned several evenings to find her survival gear scattered or missing, but she can’t carry it all each day. The base of the tree is the best storage system she’s got for now.

"It was like a reason to live. It was a flourishing time in my life. I just felt good about myself. I just felt a sense of belonging..."

Today is the 50 year commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King's death. Let's remember all his life represented. Let's celebrate the Beloved Community Village as a piece of his vision - And let's build another village!


“The Beloved Community was for MLK a realistic, achievable goal that could be attained by a critical mass of people committed to and trained in the philosophy and methods of nonviolence. Dr. King’s Beloved Community is a global vision, in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth.”

* A quote from the King Center
