Over 2 billion Christians around the world are observing Easter weekend, closing out today with “Resurrection Sunday”. I do not observe this holiday but I remember when I was a young man growing up in BeBee Tabernacle Church in Houston, I was always given the task of singing an Easter Sunday solo. The song was “Jesus is the Answer” and I would be sweating bullets under my suit from the department store Weiners.
And I remember asking my pastor for the meaning of that song and he said “One day Jesse you will come to know it“. I did learn. Thank you Paster Covington.

A few Dr. King quotables:
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns.”
“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
“The moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice.”
