Martin Luther King Jr. Day Thought..

I quick reflection about today…

We are all imperfect vessels.  That does not alter what we are capable of doing and how we can impact change.  It means we must reflect on and acknowledge our shortcomings, yet continuously strive for what we know is right and just.

You deplore the demonstrations taking place… but your statement fails to express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations.  I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals merely with the effects and does not grapple with the underlying causes.
