While the title refers to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1967 Christmas sermon, there are actually three different quotes incorporated into the work: That all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. – Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail Now let me say that the next thing we must be concerned about if we are to have peace on earth and goodwill toward men is the nonviolent affirmation of the sacredness of all human life. Every man is somebody because he is a child of God. Every woman is somebody because she is a child of God. And when we truly believe in the sacredness of human personality, we won’t exploit people, we won’t trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won’t kill anybody. – Martin Luther King, Jr., Christmas Sermon on Peace, 1967 Give yourself to the service of life, not the work of death. Violence is the enemy of justice. Only peace can lead the way to true justice. – Pope John Paul II, September 29, 1979
