Remember The Love of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The first three words Lynda Blackmon Lowery, the youngest marcher in Selma in 1965, heard from Dr. Martin Luther King, were:

“Steady, Loving Confrontation.”

Her story needs to be heard. Bloody Sunday must be remembered, just like the Holocaust must be remembered, and the Massacre at Wounded Knee. We need to learn and not repeat the horrors of history. We need to carry on with compassion for all people. For all beings. For the planet, Earth.

After being beaten and gassed in Selma, the marchers rested and regrouped. Then, they embraced the fear and marched on with the “Steady, Loving Confrontation,” of civil disobedience.  Their perseverance led to the  Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Please listen to these words of Dr. King as he explains Civil Disobedience and Love:

 

Can we rise above hate and fear?

Can we remember to love?
