1. There’s a wonderful little passage that Martin Luther King had written from a jail cell where he talks about the effect of racism on young African-American children and how he can see on the face of a child the clouds of inferiority gathering as they observe some racist taunt or action. And when I think about — in some senses — the safest place to raise our children, there are many different forms of risk that we have in life.

    Novelist Mohsin Hamid, who lives in Lahore, Pakistan, talks about how a safe place to raise children can be judged in different ways.

    Today marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s "Letter from A Birmingham Jail" to which Hamid refers above. You can read the entire text of the letter here.
