Let Freedom Ring!
As The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. would say
Why him - because he was our best til now.
I am a 65 year old man and I first saw The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. on a TV screen as a child.
I knew then that it was okay to be black - I knew that the "N"
word should never be used in my vocabulary. There was no Roots
yet. When Emmett was "MURDERED" I was two (2) years old, I was also (2) when Rosa refused to give up her seat on the bus and the ensuing Bus Boycott.
My family didn't talk about our struggle - I don't know how I knew not to ever use that "DISGUSTING" word. Here I am sixty (65) years old and have never used that word. I knew never to call another Black person that word. I don't know how I knew - I just always knew. And when I hear it my body cringes - I don't bother people when I hear it. I just feel for them.
Nobody else on the face of this earth takes what someone meant for "their" disgust and try to turn it into love.
Stay tune the book will be out soon - hopefully someone will read this and start to change the way they respond to the world.
I have a friend that is a doctor who says "that we will be so far down that it will be impossible to get up".
Well, we have done more with less then any other human beings on this earth and I refuse to believe that.
We are the "ONLY" people here that have ever been legislated out of society.
Just wanted to give you some food for thought. When I can afford to write the book - I will - will it save everyone of course not because everyone doesn't want to be saved. Actually it will only save those that don't won't to be lost.
Well, that is it for now. Stay tuned the revolution will not be televised.
GOD BLESS THE CHILD THAT HAS HIS OWN.
