We remember that for justice, peace, human decency and truth, Dr. King died rather than give in to the racism, war, and violence he faced .
We toll a bell of peace for justice, nonviolence, and love.
We bang drums in celebration of  Dr. King, his life and his  message of hope and resistance in the face of racism and sexism, greed, militarism and war .
