Celebrating Martin Luther King In 2021

By Charlotte Robinson, January 18, 2021

With Washington D.C. in military lockdown in preparations for the Biden-Harris Inauguration after Trump’s supporters treasonous display of violence failed to dismantle our democracy I can’t help wonder what Martin Luther King Jr. would think about what America has become. This summer was so hopeful with all the Black Lives Matters rallies across the nation in response to the murder of George Floyd. Then we mobilized during a pandemic to use our vote to rid this country of an administration bend on taking away the rights & protections of minorities, LGBTQ people & women. After President-elect Joe Biden & Vice President-elect Kamala Harris huge win we began to see the light at the end of this dark tunnel but Trump still wouldn’t face reality as his big lie started to manifest into the shock & horrors of January 6th. Looking back to 2017 just before the Trump inauguration when his cabinet selections appeared determined to set civil rights in this country backwards by at least 60 years the late John Lewis spoke the truth stating, "We must not be silent. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping him get elected & in destroying the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. I think there was a conspiracy on the part of Russians & others that helped him get elected. That's not right, that's not fair. That's not the open democratic process. When you see something that's not right you have a moral obligation to do something." So whatever happens this week standup & commit to moving America forward & never let hate win.
