Today as we honor the life of Martin Luther King Jr., we continue to look to him for encouragement and rationality, in a world that seems to have gone completely mad. We can benefit so greatly by adopting and practicing more of what he tried to teach us over 50 years ago. Those messages of love not, hate. Messages of unity, acceptance, full of common sense. Messages very similar to those of Jesus Christ.
I'm truly struggling with the current practice of publicly rejecting, humiliating or even trying to shame people or groups, just because they don't happen to share the same skin color, beliefs. politics or culture. It's high time we cancel the "cancel culture.". This "woke" mentality, that America is made up of "systemic" racism, injustices and prejudices, is just pure craziness.
I don't know about you, but I'm a little fatigued over all the chatter about the United States of America being a racist country. We have certainly made mistakes and had some pieces of our history that we'd like a do-over for, or maybe even want to erase. However, let's be clear... when we try to erase our history, it erases all the progress we've made towards creating that more perfect Union, and more importantly, puts us in jeopardy of repeating that same history.
