Rapping About a World at Risk

Remembering the Passing of MLK Jr.

Today we pause to honor the memory and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

With great reverence we mark the passing of this great man.

Our American Moses went to the mountaintop.

MLK Jr. was a courageous risk taker.

He was a major force in transforming the American political and social landscape.

He was a man of vision and strong conviction and was a steadfast advocate and fighter for social justice and peace.

He advocated the road of peaceful means and non-violence to effect social change.

He truly embodied and exemplified the teachings of his savior Jesus Christ.

He was a prophet and a great American.

I am honored to be his countrymen and blessed that I lived to know and witness his life and work.

“But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. ” Mark 6:4

God bless you Reverend King.
