In light of the current events, the thoughts of reformer Richard Wetherill are inspiring: "We must let the thoughts of the creator replace our thoughts so that we are rational, honest, and morally right. Then, as promised in the ancient book of the prophet Ezekiel, we live and do not die!"

My father, the Rev. A.D. King and my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King spoke of a "beloved community" where love and peace abounds. It is a righteous quest.

On the other hand, Wetherill was given the insight of a natural law of right behavior to resolve the mayhem of the spiritual realm. He named it the "law of right action," requiring people to think rationally, honestly, and morally right to accord with the thinking of the creator. All three men were on one accord here. I pray America can follow suit, starting in Ferguson.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is a pastoral associate and director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father’s church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
