Transcript for Sara and Keke honor MLK Day
Martin Luther king Jr. Has done so much for our nation, not just for black people but all people, but really bringing the human race together. You know, this day is very important. We must acknowledge it and remember that was somebody who had a vision and so I'm very grateful for everything that he's done. It's so important, martin Luther king was so important. There's a slew of quotes. Whenever this day rolls around and throughout the year, especially right now, his words come to mind. Two of my favorite quotes, "Darkness can't drive darkness only light can do that. Hate can't drive out hate, only love can do that." The other one is, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." Martin Luther's daughter got to do a lot of different things with her, going to different monuments and learn about our history. One thing I remember asking her, how did martin do it? You know, everybody wants to try to re-create that kind of movement. Getting people together. She said we started out small. There were regional people in all these different areas they created teams. Lot of times we shoot so fast at the end but change can be started with you and people in your community. You and your next-door neighbor deciding to do something together. You don't think it has to be this big thing. It can be something so small. The discipline and the clarity of that plan is brilliant. In the peaceful protests was, I remember reading, to fight back in those moments is to give them a reason to be coming at you. That whole sit-in and stay, the civil rights movement had the power because they stayed so disciplined what they did. That note movements can take today, you have to have a clear mission and you have to be disciplined. Amen. She tweeted out, his daughter actually tweeted out, right here, people often ask me, what would he say were he alive today? He's said it. We're just not listening. He beckoned us far above civility. Love, justice, true peace, herry, beloved community. Quickly, I want to hear from an audience member, what mlk day has meant to her. We have Victoria, where is Victoria? I'm a police officer in Dallas. Thank you. So, obviously, back in the day my profession was one that was held back and now because of mlk, because of his dream, I get a part of moving that division forward. Without him I wouldn't be even able to put on that uniform every day so I'm so grateful for him for that. And thank you for what you do. And I think it kind -- a good way to face this day is to remember mlk day is a day of service, so today just take it upon each of us watching right now to do one act of service in the name of civility and peace and unification. Amen, Sara. I love you.
