Happy Birthday To You!!!!
There are so many people out today seeking justice for all. Although many have been kicked out and groups disbanned, the DC government is presently allowing the Occupy DC protestors in Freedom Plaza and McPherson Square to remain where they are. Just what are they protesting against while enduring the frigid temperatures and rat infestations? Wall Street, Corporate greed and Income Inequality. Like Dr. King says if we don't stand up for the disenfranchised, who will?
Remember the Woolworth sit-ins?
The more things change the more they remain the same.
It is hard to soften a man's heart that has turned to stone. Notice I say hard not impossible. Paul, one of God's greatest apostles, was once one of his ardent enemies. If God can change the heart of Saul/Paul nothing is impossible.
As a matter of fact the Bible tells us that all things are possible with God. Matthew 19:26.
Although Dr. King is no longer walking with us, his legacy is. It is easy to say what we would have, could have done were we with him in Washington, Montgomery and Memphis. The question is, what will you do now? Do you say, I am going to mind my own business? Let everyone fend for themselves? It wasn't me. On which side will you stand?
Joshua says it better than I ever could. 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Donnie McClurkin sings, I've got my mind made up and I won't turn back. As we go forward let's keep the main thing the main thing. I agree with Suze Orman's people first, then money, then things.
Zachary's father shares the same birthday as Dr. King. Like Dr. King, he also was gone too soon. Happy Birthday Ian!!!
