Niagara Gazette — We are people who stood by and watched people who look like us, as they closed the only black institution in the city, built by those same parents and grandparents who had less education than us, and even fewer resources — our Niagara Community Center.
We celebrate Dr. King’s birthday; but do we celebrate the non-elected Reverend King and his work — a man who was willing to lay down his own life so that your children might enjoy a better one for themselves?
What does King inspire you to do, and what do those for whom you voted, inspire you to do?
If Reverend King is really king, then emulate him and do it; and others will watch you on their 55-inch, HD color, flat panel television sets and see how great you are, and be inspired by you to do likewise. There is nothing horizontal or vertical to hold you back from doing so.Contact Ken Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
