For Topic-Talk Walks (TTWalks), the MLK Marade is also a celebration of our personal stories, about an "Economics of Compassion" (EOC). Since 2013, TTWalks' has brought their 3'x5' purple "Economics of Compassion" flag, to each annual Marade. TTWalks' "Economics of Compassion" flag was co-created in 2013, as our way, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I have a Dream" speech in August of 1963. We also brought it to Washington, D.C. for the 50th year celebration march, in August of 2013. In Denver's 2019 MLK Marade, TTWalks' participants will take turns remembering and sharing their EOC stories, and pulling TTWalks's "Economics of Compassion" flag, mounted on a red wagon. WHERE TO MEET Meet your co-hosts, Fran and Richard Rew, with TTWalks' EOC flag, and TTWalks' mascot TTW Frog and his grandpa frog, on the west side of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, I HAVE A DREAM MEMORIAL (usually, also west of the Kaiser Permanente tent).

STORIES: EOC JOURNEY FROM NATURE TO SCIENCE. Every person's personal favorite story of an Economics of Compassion (EOC) is different. The common thread for all our EOC stories is our compassionate exchange of our currency of "Living Energy" with each other, and with our environment. TTWalks' mascot, TTW Frog, shared his story, of his EOC journey from nature to science, in his photo collage "Living Energy" story, on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/pg/TopictalkWalks/photos/?tab=album&album_id=714669338608036 There is more information, about TTWalks' Economics of Compassion flag at: http://topictalkwalks.com/TTWalks/Economics-of-Compassion.html. What's Dr. Martin Luther King's EOC story and definition, of an "Economics of Compassion?" "True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It's not haphazard or superficial. it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., April 4, 1967.
