The Shadow and Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Shadow and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Shadow
Good day all!!
  I’ve been sitting here watching the good people of Glendo and the surrounding area beat up on Looking In and wondering why those of us that attempt to shine the light on what appears to be potential problems even bother. Then I ran across a quote from Martin Luther King that sums it very well!!
 
Here it is:
"We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. writing on racism in Letter from a Birmingham Jail
 
It settles my soul to know that there are others out there that look in the mirror when they get up in the morning and know that they must speak out against the problems that exist around the. They are mostly railed against by those that fear what others think about them or fear someone making waves that might shake up the “status quo” but that inner peace that comes with standing up for right even though others think it wrong is worth it!! When you stop and think about it the status quo had to start somewhere. It didn’t just pop up out of thin air. Sometimes the status quo is the winner after the debate settles into meaningful discussions and that’s fine also but we need to look at all the options before we settle on that.

  I feel bad that Woody took some time off but I see he left another hammer in charge of his duties.

  Well I can’t sign off without mentioning Glendo Days. The weekend of July 4th & 5th they will be in full swing with all the usual events. Garage sales, parade, bingo, free food as always and much more. The Mud Bog will be on Sunday the 5th so come on up that weekend and join in the fun!!
 
As always,
The Shadow
