To the United Nations 50th Anniversary Global Peace Walk '95:
I write express my warmest greetings and encouragement to all of the good
people who are taking part in the United Nations 50th Anniversary Global
Peace Walk '95 as you gather in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
The theme for the 1995 King holiday observance is "Kingian Nonviolence in
Action: Empowering Future Generations to Serve." The theme underscores the
vital importance of community services in the spirit of Martin Luther King,
Jr. It also reflects the critical need to educate and and train young
people in Dr. King's teachings to prepare them to become effective agents of
nonviolence conflict-resolution and social change.
In keeping with this vision, the King Center has trained thousands of people
from all walks of life and many nations to apply Dr. King's philosophy and
methods of nonviolent conflict-resolution and social change. With your
support, we will be able to expand our training programs and reach millions
of new activists around the world, who are dedicated to creating a global
community of peace with justice.
It is gratifying that the United Nations 50th Anniversary Global Peace Walk
'95 is committed to working for the realization of my husband's dream for a
beloved world community. The great work you are doing is an inspiration to
all of the King Center family.
In closing, I wish you the best for a joyful observance and I look forward
to hearing of your continued success.
