How can that be? I’m remembering King’s legacy today and every day, especially when I think of where we are now and everything we’ve been through. Where are we going? And, maybe more importantly, how do we get there?
One of King’s quotes really stands out today…
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
Honestly, have truer words ever been spoken? It’s like I’ve always said, “If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem.” And I’m not just talking on a grand scale here. It can be something as small as seeing people bully others and failing to speak up. Because if you see someone getting bullied and choose to sit by and do nothing, then you’re just as bad as the person doing the actual bullying. In fact, maybe you’re even worse than the bullies.
Your silence speaks volumes.
