I Saw the Light

cleveland

I saw the light of my people, of all people

walking over rugged terrain,

in small towns, in the cities,

sometimes through ruins

marching peacefully

with fire in their hearts,

huge crowds gathering

for their brothers and sisters,

for all people…..

demanding liberty

and justice

for all.

Dr. Martin Luther King

from pbs

We have slipped, somewhat fallen away from his vision,

may we be restored,

may we return to the fire

seeking equality

for one,

and for all.

God thank You for the life and work of Dr. King.

Amen.
