This morning while perusing the net I found an article about his niece, Dr. Alveda King, an outspoken opponent of abortion on demand and a great conservative spokeswoman by example, and thought it quite timely. Dr. King the niece said that she found it highly unlikely that her uncle would have ever worn a hoodie and he certainly would have never worn saggy pants. How refreshing to hear the truth for a change.
I am certainly sorry that Trayvon Martin died and I don't know if George Zimmerman was somewhat foolish in his actions prior to the fight and shooting, but I don't think he should have been convicted. I do know this, however, a legally constituted jury heard all the arguments, struggled over their deliberations and, when all was said and done, acquitted Mr. Zimmerman. They followed the law, they found that the state had not made its case well, and they reached the only result that was reasonable. They took their duties very seriously and for all of the left wing pundits to say otherwise is reprehensible.
The living Dr. King said so much herself in different words, of course, but I wanted to comment on this because it is very courageous for a modern black American woman to take this stand. And it also takes great intestinal fortitude to speak directly about dress and the message that it can sometimes send to others. Furthermore, her expression of love not hate is the bottom line of where we all need to be.
If we Americans don't pull together in love and unity this country that we love so much will die an inglorious death. If you think that is a good idea, I can take you to some places in the world where I have been which will change your view quickly, but by then it will be too late.
So Dr. King, the living, proud to honor the true message of your late uncle, I salute you from the bottom of my heart. You speak with eloquence and you speak with the love of the Father and the Son and that's what we need so desperately today. Love not hate, thought and understanding is what the late Dr. King and his Savior, Jesus Christ, would want and expect.
Let us all try to live up to that expectation and God bless you all.
