“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” Martin Luther King
America seems be be feeding on a daily diet of troubling times. Chaos on our southern border, increased poverty, expansion of terrorism through the rise of the Islamic extremist movement called Issis and now the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson Missouri. The undercurrent of black hate directed toward whites. It appears that black citizens in this small Missouri town have bought into the doctrine of hate and unbridled bigotry peddled by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, rather than adhere to the philosophy of the man who did more to give the downtrodden a dream. That man: Martin Luther King Jr.
It is unfortunate that racism still exists in America in spite of the progress made by Dr. King, Medgar Evers and other black reformers. It must be stamped out. What would Martin Luther King say this day if he were in Ferguson? Would he not ask for reason and calm to prevail, for emotions to give way to patience? Failure to allow the legal system in America to fulfill its purpose is to say that we as Americans do not believe in the God given freedoms that this country is to provide to all men and women.
I pray daily for peace in America. I pray for an increased measure of love for all mankind. I am saddened when I see the reaction without reason that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson etc. have instilled in the hearts of the blacks of Ferguson. So much of what Martin Luther King fought and died for has been undone by A & J.
