Tension & Waiting

One of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s most famous writings is Letter From Birmingham Jail (4/16/63). While he discusses multiple elements that go to the core of racial injustice, unjust laws, ethics, civil disobedience, and other profound themes worth mentioning and analyzing, there are 2 topics I wish to highlight that merit evaluation. MLK, Jr. discusses "tension" and the concept of "waiting." 


1. "But, I must confess that I am not afraid of the word "tension." I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth."

2. "For years now I have heard the word "Wait!" It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This "Wait" has almost always meant 'Never.'"


How can tension be good for personal growth and the growth of an organization like SlideBelts? What should you not "Wait" on in 2015 and beyond?
