Martin Luther King Holiday and Inauguration Week
Using The Holiday To Help the Needy
Life’s most persistent and urgent question, “What are you doing for others?” The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
On this holiday Americans are encouraged to honor Dr. King’s legacy by participating in volunteer activities and helping persons of color, marginalized groups, the disabled, poor, the oppressed and undocumented, the needy and the elderly. We ask that you think about what you can do to make the world more just for all people, and how you can best serve the needs of others. We also ask that you especially remember the elderly today as the pandemic continues, and help them, virtually and safely. Seniors have been hit hardest both by fatalities to the virus and in the hazards of forced isolation intended to protect them. Things are not likely to change for the better soon for older Americans. The litigators at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent all kinds of individuals against any form of injustice and exploitation, including elderly persons subject to those evils. They need our help. Please do your part to help. Reach out to any isolated seniors today. Be kind. Be present in their lives. Show them love.
Show all Americans love. Dr. King gave his glorious “I Have A Dream” speech in 1963 in our nation’s capital. Americans respect not just the dignity of government but the dignity of every single American, rich or poor, black or white, religious or not, straight or gay, young or old. The eloquence of Dr. King still rings true after all these decades come to fruition:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris will be sworn in on Wednesday. This is a big week for America. Take the time to honor Dr. King today through service to others and celebrate Inauguration Day and join with all of us to make this a country a place that respects all persons, cherishes its diversity, welcomes the stranger and lifts the downtrodden.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
