Merry Christmas everyone.

Oh Holy Night!

The new criminal justice reform bill is a holiday blessing. As witness to this historic event, I can tell you that this pen (below), as well as the one for the religious freedom and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Park are more than mere souvenirs.

These symbolic objects are evidence that God is moving our president, and our nation, toward repentance and transformation.

I’m on my way back home from Washington, D.C. just before Christmas praying for all humanity. Many have experienced loss this year, yet there are many blessings. As my grandfather, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr., would say, "Thank God for what we have left and keep looking up."

Here is a link to the First Step Act.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is 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. King — Click Here Now.
