We lost a great voice for humanity this past week. An inspiration for most of my life Rev William Sloan Coffin had a steady moral compass. He will be remembered and greatly missed.
From the New York Times:
Dr. Coffin, a believer in the power of civil disobedience to bring social and political change, was arrested as a Freedom Rider early in the 1960’s and was an early admirer of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
I looked at my weather widget this morning and found that it would be a sunny 82 degrees. Isn’t that just a bit too warm too early? I was hoping to be wearing my sweaters for at least another week.
It made me think about An Inconvenient Truth the story of Al Gore fighting to save our planet by raising awareness about global warming. The film was shown at Sundance and will be released in theaters on May 24th. The compelling truth is a rallying cry.
