To Remember

To Remember

Addae Ama Kraba

Spirit of Life,
We have come here today to remember what some are intent on making us forget.
To remember a man who fought to end segregation
To remember a man who marched to counter prejudice and oppression
To remember a man who was filled with peace and hope
To remember a man with promise and a dream
To remember a man with a voice that rang out for justice and freedom
All these things we remember and honor in the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
and a life well-lived in service to all.
May it be so.
