Civil Rights Tour 2012 – Day 6 – Nashville

June 17th, 2012

The violence is over but the images endure. How can you ever forget them? I know the people who participated in the Civil Rights movement cannot forget. Their hearts have been seared with all of it and forever changed. I get the sense that the Civil Rights leaders and “foot soldiers” of the 50’s and 60’s are worried about the future and are trying desperately to make the young people understand the importance of continuing the work they started and worked so hard to achieve. They literally gave their lives for the cause of justice and freedom. There is no higher calling. I only hope that I will be able to find a way to pass forward the knowledge and insights I gained on this trip and have the courage during difficult times to be full of grace.
Peace and Blessings.
