I looked up a few of Martin Luther King Jr’s quotes. He was a leader, a visionary and believed in equality for all. In these tumultuous times, the importance of respect for our fellow man is something too many of us have lost. Truth is, having one person lose that respect is one too many.
If you have not seen the video of the young teens from the Covington School in Kentucky harassing the Native American man who is a Vet and served our country, you should. This young teenage boy behaves with such arrogance, distain and superiority and that starts at home.
The quote that I was drawn to is “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. Our Government is shut down, people can’t seem to agree to disagree, and we have anti-racist sentiment that has become more rampant. I am not sure how the tides turn or where we go next but there are always lessons in history. Today is a good day to think about them.
