THESE WORDS EXPRESSED ARE NOT OF PASTOR’S PFLEGER’S BUT WRITER65’S .
I personally find this ” disturbing” and a little heartbreaking. A part of Dr. King’s business and history is in the hands of the State of Georgia.
I can’t respond to family matters but I must admit I am a little taken back that this has gone this far!
Family matter or not…Would Dr. Martin and Coretta King approve of what is happening here in the moment?
What hurts my heart even more, these are all siblings that have such a rich history of what their parents worked so diligently to achieved and believed!
I feel for each of them as a sibling, and looking at this situation as a parent. Where did it all go wrong? More importantly, I would like more than anything that they “reconcile” with one another… And sometimes even if that isn’t apart of their future. Please don’t juggle with history in this fashion. All that Dr. King represented… There is chaos in his own family on display!
None of us not are exempt of having family issues. This is Dr. King’s Legacy being temporarily in the hands of the State of Georgia. I pray earnestly that his history isn’t sold. I juggled with even speaking on it because of the sensitive nature of the situation. Yet, the truth is the truth! Bernice King put it out there! I am sure I would be outraged that my family history is being sold. Somethings are priceless!
This is a personal “eye opener” for me…To make sure my own affairs are in order so that anything of this nature would never come abroad. I am mindful for myself with all the Social Justice causes I have participated in or apart of. Today, I keep all of my things together so, that many things that I have stored for my family and future generations that history isn’t thrown away or juggled at a personal swap meet.
I have heard people make derogatory comments but that is the ignorance of many! The foolishness of it all… what many died and paid for is now being sold to the highest bidder. History repeats itself and I believe out of sheer ignorance. There is a time and season for all things. I have to insert myself into this because Dr. King is one of the most celebrated men all over this world and to see that this has become an issue…I am quite disappointed that “our” history is juggled in this fashion. Yes, I said, Our history! What is effecting Bernice King is effecting all of us!
The State of Georgia shouldn’t be babysitting ” our ” history but we should take hold and petition that Dr. King history stays in the family! How is it not our business at this point? I pray protection over his “belongings” because things have a way of getting lost!
Stay strong Bernice, and know that many underestimate the “wind of God” behind you! OUR HISTORY IS IN TROUBLE.. and like myself and many others we will protect it at all cost and sometimes the cost is “higher” than we care to share to the public. Even if many don’t understand, just continue to “STAND ON THE WALL”…What the “enemy” means for bad…God has a better ending!
