Celebrating Black History

It’s Black History Month. This morning, as I read about Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to kids in Sunday School, I was struck by how certain phrases in his famous “I Have A Dream” speech jumped out at me. “…now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” I believe that Dr. King, were he still alive, would be at the forefront of the fight against human trafficking. I believe, that I would stand shoulder to shoulder with him in that fight. Dr. King said it with regard to racial justice, but I believe it applies to the current slavery resulting from human trafficking worldwide… “It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of this moment.”
