Though Dr. King was a great unifier, we mustn’t forget how he challenged us:
“Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Silence is complicity. Lack of understanding and of the will to seek it are damaging. Saying “This is not who we are” every two months is ignoring the sobering image reflecting back at us in the mirror. Let’s seek unity, but first let’s try for understanding and justice.
