"This is the great new problem of mankind: We have inherited a big house, a great World House, in which we have to live together.- Black and White, Easterners and Westerners, Gentiles and Jews, Catholics and Protestants, Muslim and Hindu. A family unduly separated in ideas, culture, and interests, Who, because we can never again live without each other, must learn somehow, in this one big world, to live with each other."
-Rev.Martin Luther King Jr., 1964,minute 45, Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, Oslo, Norway.
