Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

By Dr. Alveda C. King   |  

Today we honor my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in accordance with the themes led by my cousin Bernice King, in the campaign, "NO SHOTS FIRED: A Day On Not a Day Off!

In addition she is asking all to respect the 100 Days of Nonviolence: Abstain From Violence, the Tongue and the Fist Campaign. For me this includes abortion providers not closing their fists around scalpels, forceps, and bottle caps to snuff out the lives of babies in the womb, which not only kills the babies but often kills or hurts their mothers and destroys the dreams of their fathers.

My father, the Rev. A.D. King and my mother chose life for me 63 years ago. Praise God. I hope you will pray with us that God will heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

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.
