for justice*

“This is for everybody. It has to do with justice.”
~ Rev. Cecil Williams, Glide Memorial UMC, San Francisco

On a day when the old black-and-white footage of a marching, link-armed Martin Luther King, Jr. plays on every newscast…

On a day when segments of the old black-and-white speech “I have a dream” echo from radios, classrooms, and TV stations…

On a day when the old black-and-white ways are incredibly difficult to understand…

I remember King, an ordinary man. I remember what he cried out for. Something we all cry out for. Justice. Though, only a few in the pursuit are willing to live – and die – for it.

*In honor of the ordinary men and women who extraordinarily live and die for justice.
