Lack of Writing

Aside

A Letter to my Loyal Fans:

Bonjour mes amis!

Between teaching practice and The Old Republic I haven’t had any time to write anything for the last couple of weeks. I know that all of you (my deliriously devoted horde of rabid fans) are literally at your wits end without dazzlingly brilliant new articles from Kevin to see you through each day.

As this is undoubtedly the case for at least 90% of the internet’s population, I wanted to write this post to reassure you all…

…That I’m still going to be busy for the next two weeks so you’re totally SCREWED!!!!

MWAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

*Cue distraught exclamations of dismay from fans of Kevin the world over*

It’s terrible, I know. And you know what? I don’t feel even slightly guilty 😛

So I’ll see you all in two weeks time – if you can survive that long!

Yours Sincerely, Kevin 😉

I would like to share two links with you: firstly, the full text and audio of his speech ‘Beyond Vietnam; and secondly, an instrumentation of some of the key points of that speech by Linkin Park which is extremely powerful, and after which I have named this post.

For those of us who may be too busy to read the full speech, I have quoted here some of the main points which have been highlighted by the wikiquotes page on Martin Luther King. All credit for these quotes goes to that website. In this speech Martin Luther King is talking about Vietnam, but I think that his insights and convictions are just as relevant to us today as they were then.

I hope that on this World Day of Peace, and this start of a new year, you may find his words as moving as I have: Continue reading
