What started with Rosa Parks, and a seat to be denied,

became the rally cry for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. heard,

from Billie Holiday (Lady Day) such sorrowful thoughts

became for Maya Angelou,”thoughts on the caged bird,”

there has always been a voice to be heard and speak

to the spirit within us all… that which can be moved to sing,

and we must reflect today, to grow, on this message true…

“I have a dream,” where liberty for all can grow to ring.

Beyond the road to Selma… today our Ferguson, there is hope to be found in the broader view of Human Rights. This transcends the color of a man/woman or his/her condition… to speak with the reverberation of such indignation taken to deny anyone of the fundamental ‘Human Rights’ we all deserve to embrace and enjoy as our own. If there has been anything Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would want us to remember… it should be seen as our commonality, being ‘Human.’ Equality was never meant to be found in a separate state… but one state, the state where equality is understood and acted on, and from, and through. God gives man the strength to stand and claim this loudly… with the feeling and determination to marvel at what He will bring us through- together.

Raise your hand to be counted... and raise your voice to be heard- help raise a Brother's conscience efforts in light of the history we know.

Raise your hand to be counted… and raise your voice to be heard- help raise a Brother’s conscience efforts in light of the history we know.
