“What are you doing for others?” #MLKDay Of Service

Outstanding post, Mr. JB! Yesterday I attended a MLK Community Breakfast in California. The theme was “Preserving the Family and Protecting the Children.” There were speakers from local, state and federal there who talked about Dr. King’s legacy, where we are and what we still must do. In many ways, the progress King made is going in reverse as prisons continue to fill with black and brown men in a modern day system of slavery. Whites continue to terrorize blacks (and whites) as we saw with Trayvon Martin and police brutality. Hunger and poverty rages in this rich nation. The economic disparity and injustice toward people of color rages on. However, I didn’t take one day off to recognize Dr. King and take his advice on being active for freedom, equality and justice. I try to do this every single day for my children, grandchildren, nation and the world.
My friend, Jueseppi ObamaCrat Baker, expresses it well in his blog, TheObamaCrat.
