Dear MUNACA members, I would like to ask you to take a moment to consider the significance of this anniversary. On August 28th 1963 250,000 marched on Washington DC to demand their freedom and basic human rights. Have we as the human race made significant progress in our relationships with other members of our species or have we come up lacking?
On Saturday August 26th on the anniversary of another shooting in Jacksonville, Florida a white man 21 years old walked into a convenience store and shot and killed three black people simply because he hated black people. I guess that cowardly and despicable act has answered my first question.
I remember watching news reports about this event and listening to Martin Luther King speak. Let us work together to ensure that Martin Luther King’s dream becomes a reality sooner than later.
Yours in solidarity,
