MLK DAY – 2022
Monday, January 17, 2022 10:12 AM
This year’s MLK Day commemoration feels particularly significant in the face of last year’s insurrectionist attack on our nations capitol. With the ever growing body of reported factual actions and occurrences done by various parties of our government – from its highest level to its rank and file – and by fomenting American citizenry, it would be hard to conclude anything other than a well-coordinated attempted coup on our democratic government took place on January 6, 2021.
The predictable lip service paid to the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by various politicians who have labored by hook and crook to destroy every shred of furtherance and protection of King’s dream of a equality – abetted and indemnified by the Supreme Court’s conservative majority – was a forgone conclusion. In defiance of this hypocrisy, let us contemplate King’s life and work through his own words.
