True Friendship

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Today we honor a man who gave his life in the pursuit of tolerance and equality, virtues that continue to need emphasis and support. His statement is a reflection, too, of historical eras when regular citizens, who felt safe, failed to speak out about injustice to others. “See something, say something” might be wise words when we consider the inalienable rights we enjoy.

There is joy for those who deal justly with others and always do what is right. (Psalm 106:3)
