Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 15, 2018 Tidbit

A long way to go

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream that there could be peace and harmony. Today, it continues to be a dream in the future. There is hatred that is dividing our country, our leadership makes sure to fuel that divide constantly. Comments about immigrants and their places of origin prove that he has little to no respect for humans that look different than he does. It is a disgrace to know that a person holds such power that holds little respect for others.

I pray to God that as a country we can vote in a person who has a soul that loves and accepts others for their differences, one who will unite instead of divide. I hope that Martin Luther King Jr. is not able to witness the state of affairs right now, I think he would be very disappointed. As a people of faith we need to unite in peace, accept others where they are and love people through this unrest praying and working towards a change that must come.
