The Fierce Urgency of Now
This collage of stories linked to the front page of the October 3 New
York Times exposes the falsehoods we repeat ourselves as a nation,
just as Harrisonburg's street renaming exposed the falsehoods that
impeded our city's reaching for Dr. King's dreams. America can reach
for the dream. We can take care of our own. At the bottom of the false
economic arguments is nothing but antipathy for our fellow human
beings. That is what Harrisonburg saw when we probed for what was
behind the anger against our renaming. Our municipal policy makers saw
it too, and vote their conscience. Pray and raise Dr. King's moral
voice that we may similarly change our heart at the federal level.
