Last weekend was amazing. My Mother Naomi King was accosted in a carjack attempt, and my pastor and mentor Allen McNair died. Meanwhile, the should be helpful Million Man Marchers were in DC chanting ‘down with America and the Blue Klux Klan.’ If not for the grace of God and the wisdom and sanity taught by Mother, Pastor McNair, Daddy, Granddaddy and Uncle MLK, I would have given way to despair. Still I encourage everyone to remain prayerful and undaunted.
