"In fifth grade, I did a book report on Dr Martin Luther King Jr.My parents had just helped start a church whose mission statement was “racial reconciliation.” I was fascinated by the conversations surrounding me on Sunday morning. “The most segregated day of the week,” my pastor would remind us. “We are ambassadors of reconciliation.It’s why we’re here.” Pastor Bob would quote MLK on the regular, and though fifth grade was way too early to even begin to appreciate all he accomplished with his short life, that year changed me forever. I guess you could say it was the first time I was #WOKE
I was awakened to how differently my experience on earth had been than so many others.And that was a beautiful thing. Twenty something years later, I still struggle to know my role in the ongoing struggle to help heal the ugly scar of racism that runs through America’s history. I don’t dare pretend I have any idea what it’s like for so many brothers and sisters of mine, who have recounted stories of being judged not by the content of their character but by the color of their skin. Dr King said Only love can drive out hate. Sometimes the most loving thing I can do, as a caucasian male in today’s society is call out injustice and bigotry and racist rhetoric when I see and hear of it. I’ve lost followers over such things and been told repeatedly to keep my nose out of politics. No matter. For the record, I’ve never had much taste for politics, but thanks to Dr King, I’m not afraid to stick my nose out in the name of love. (Thanks Bono) I too have long had a dream to see justice roll down and the light from the people of God swallow up hatred in all its forms. I pray you take time to listen to or read some of Dr King’s words today.They’ve helped change the way I see my friends, my family, and the world." - @mikedonehey #MLKday
