Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

18 January 2021

Last year on this occasion, we asked out loud, "Wouldn't it be ironic, if the nation was saved from this regime at the polls by the very people who it once enslaved?"

Martin Luther King Memorial. Reflections on the still water.

At the time, the President had just been impeached and was on trial in the Senate. But the Senate was not inclined to listen to any evidence, let alone remove the President from office.

So it fell to the country at large to defeat him last November. And it did. Overwhelmingly. Beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Moreover, it gave the new President's party the Senate when Black voters in Georgia concluded two Senate runoff races in favor of the Democratic challengers.

Indeed, the nation has been saved from the Republican assault on our democratic values over the last four years and most recently on Congress itself by the very people who once enslaved it.

They marched in Dr. King's footsteps to the ballot box and voted overwhelmingly for the dream he had envisioned for everyone.

This nation owes them a debt of gratitude.
