MLK DAY MESSAGE
Sorry about the lateness of this blog and the lack of meaningful blogs the past week, but I have been somewhat under the weather the past week or so. Nothing specific but marked by excessive fatigue and the docs cannot find a cause despite all and exotic tests.
In my lifetime I have heard many memorable speeches including my college graduation address by President FDR the day after Italy invaded France. That was the famous “Stab in the back” address which committed us to overt help for Brittan and the Allies.
Today I delayed my market trip to hear another powerful mesmerizing speech given by Congressman John Lewis.
Quite a contrast from President-elect Trump’s twitter “All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad."
Lewis’s message should be listened to or read by all; black, white, Asian, Hispanic, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu etc.
Hatred, bigotry demeaning others will never solve our relationship problems.
However, all must understand that the above are not one way streets. “Do unto others as you would have done unto you”.
