“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Three quotes from our students who particiapted:

I attended an annual celebration of “What Would Dr. King Think” at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Columbia, Mo. The topic was #MeToo. We walked several blocks  with candlelight in solidarity to the celebration. I was grateful to sit with a diverse crowd to honor Dr. King.

I prayed with my legs continuing to Wade in the Water on the Justice Journey as I led songs in the MARADE with the band transforming the space.reconnecting to my beloved communities and engaged in meaningful dialogue with new people.  Sealed inLove and in the Spirit of Harding. “We are Building Up a  New World!

Here is a picture of me and my family (2 sons, x-wife, my mother and my oldest son’s girlfriend) just before the march began at City Park yesterday! We have been attending the march every year for about 10 years now, it is a family tradition to for us to engage with everyone throughout the city that endeavors to carry on King’s legacy.

Meet at Iliff at 9.30 am or on the steps of South High School at 10:25 am.

This is a 5 km gentle walk with lots of singing. It was fun even in the bitter cold last year.
