“This is America’s opportunity to help bridge the gulf between the haves and the have-nots. The question is whether America will do it.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in his last Sunday sermon, Remaining Awake through a Great Revolution
Dr. King’s question is still before us. We still have the ability to bridge this gulf, even though it has been growing larger and larger, especially in the past 30 years.
