UNYIELDING COMPASSION

Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase; just take the first step. 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

When violence erupted in our nation, a man named Martin Luther King Jr. taught us unyielding compassion. He gave us a dream that all races and creeds would walk hand in hand. He marched and he prayed and, one at a time, opened hearts and saw the birth of his dream in us.

Pres. Barack Obama (from his book, “Of Thee I Sing”)

 

….and we are still marching, still hoping, still living UNYIELDING COMPASSION. 50 years since MLK was killed….when will we ever learn?

One thought on “UNYIELDING COMPASSION

  1. Jane Thomas says:

    Remember that Martin Luther King Jr. also said “Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” (Possibly derived from a collection of sermons by Theodore Parker, 1853)

    It is our duty to keep up the good work, to keep up the pressure on that arc. Keep on, sister! You are not alone.
