Today is a very special day around the world. I remember hearing on the radio, that Martin Luther King Jr. had been shot and killed. I was stunned and sadden by the news. My heart was heavy, because I thought what will happen to us as a people (Black) and as a nation. Martins I Have A Dream speech is known around the world as one of Hope. Each time I hear the speech, I wounder, what Martin would think about the world as it is now. We have made some progress, and yes, there is still much work to do. If you follow the news, as I do some days, it would seem like we are moving in a backward movement. Sometime I wonder, what is going on! My hope, is that all my sisters and brothers, take a step back and look at what is happening in our world, communities, churches and ask them self the question, am I doing all I can to help make the world a better place. Am I uplifting someone everyday. Am I the light, in someones darkness.
As we prepare to move forward in 2015, keep in mind, that we are all here to give of service.
I wish you much Peace, Faith, & Courage!
