“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today in the United States we honor the life and legacy of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.
But what we may take for granted is the technology available at the time to help spread his message.
Through newspaper, television and radio King’s preaching reached our entire nation. We will never know this side of eternity just how much of his influence and success came through the use of mass communication.
In God’s amazing Divine Providence, we honor King and the equality he stood for less than a week before the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. King’s assassination, in fact, came just five years before the decision.
After repenting for her own abortions, Dr. Alveda King began to follow in her uncle’s footsteps by preaching equality for all.
Whether you’re off from work for the national holiday or busy about your usual Monday tasks, take a moment to pray for the soul of King, his assassin and for the equality of all, born and unborn.
