Let Freedom Ring

May we continue to pray and seek equality for all. ❤

Revelations In Writing

No so many years ago,
generations before us, a few;
civil rights were not so right –
justice did not really ring so true.
Our nation boldly bragged of freedom,
yet separated by tone of skin;
ignorant disillusionment,
passed on to next of kin.
There then came a generation,
that recognized the wrong;
they spoke through peaceful protest,
faith-filled freedom was their song.
For Dr. King and others,
fought for freedoms we now know;
their bravery and persistence,
daily still does show.
Wise words so boldly spoken,
declaring a dream to come;
for hand in hand our nation’s rising,
and works to get things done.
This is a generation,
that has not known such strife;
for the content of one’s character,
deems the value of each life.
From the mountains to the valleys,
to the sea may hearts choose sing;
may his dream live on forever,
and forever freedom ring.
