While reading Dream March by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson, my seven-year old grandson Kieran said he didn’t think it was fair that Dr. King was arrested and jailed for his belief that everyone should be treated equally. Hopefully our youth will be so impacted by the brave words of so many, not only Dr. King, who speak out for love and courage that they will shepherd us to a more just and loving community.
“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.”
— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: Beyond Vietnam, 1967
Lord, make us a means of your peace. Amen.
