As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “End U.S. Wars and Occupations,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"True leaders work for peace." "The greatest purveyor of violence in the world: my own government, I cannot be silent." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

“True leaders work for peace.” “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world: my own government, I cannot be silent.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

My Commentary: Indeed!
