” . . . And Then There Were None!”

KingHappy Hump Day, All!

As if anything else could surprise us nowadays?! Another shooting at a business school in downtown St. Louis, MO … I mean, what are we thinking about? If someone has a problem with another person … into their office at work and …. bam!!! Suddenly, the “perp” realizes he made a mistake … so he kills himself … or tries to in the case of the part time student in St. Louis.

Wow! It is like human kind is on the brink of disaster … forever! Helicopter crash in London … unexpected. A young boy – 6 years old – in Miramar, FL was hit with a “Happy Meal” in his hand while crossing the street last weekend. The driver never stopped … In fact, reports indicate that he actually swerved a few times trying to get the youngster OFF of the hood of the car … couldn’t immediately, but, when he finally did, he ran over the tiny body …

Yesterday was the birthday of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was born January 15th, 1929. This was the man who took it all, front and center, bus boycotts, segregated counters in restaurants, water hoses and dogs … not to mention hate-filled racist police in full force. He and Gandhi began a program of non-violent resistance to combat the evils of society. Both men, exemplary in their family’s and social life, left loving imprints on society. Yet, Dr. King faced a death of assassination that was less than dehumanizing for a man who believed that ” … we shall over come some day!”

May we remember the good of human kind so that we do not have to repeat the evil …

Peace,

John I. Cook, Director
