“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”-Martin Luther King Jr.
I will expand upon that by saying in our greatest challenges and stormiest days, our enemies shall not prevail if our friends unite in action and love, to overcome adversity and hate, and to not be silent even against the howling wind. Together as one people, as one global community, we stand together as a force of peace, greater than any force of violence since our strength is stronger when we are united and not divided.
Our strongest days are ahead of us, so don’t give in to the fear of our enemy, for when we do the enemy wins.
My father was a Korean War veteran and after a police officer. My mother was a primary school teacher. Even though they both are not with us their legacy lives within.
We offer our thoughts and prayers for all the families of the officers who chose to protect the freedoms of those whom might have civicly and politically disagreed with the actions of a few in the line of duty. They courageously and selflessly chose to put their lives on the line in order for others to march in peaceful protest.
In the end, MLK chose to do the same-in the face of violence, choosing love and unity, over division and hate.
