A man protesting in Ferguson, Missouri asked, “How can we begin to heal something that people don’t acknowledge that it’s broke?”
The events in Ferguson, Missouri have sparked a wildfire of protests and outcries against social injustice.
Some have responded with violence. A delegation from the King Center came with a message of peace. It was led by CEO, Bernice King, the daughter of Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.
“We call it Nonviolence 365. Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding. Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice and not people. Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate. That’s my father’s philosophy and methodology of nonviolence.”
Like her father, Bernice says she was called to the pulpit and the forefront of social activism.
“I was just being obedient to what I believed was the voice of God calling me into ministry. As I’ve gone through this maturation in Christ and in my ministry, drawing closer to my father’s legacy, I’ve come to understand that I have a profound responsibility to carry the next phase of that.”
