Kids in Arizona send thank you notes to Civil Rights Veterans

Yesterday I received 2 postcards from the Volunteer Center of Southern Arizona, Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service. One of them was hand signed by Lorina H, age 8 who wrote “Thank you for your service.” An MLK quotation: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”, was followed by this message that brought tears to my eyes, “Thank you for taking those steps to get us where we are today. Your role in the Civil Rights Movement will not be forgotten.” So lovely and so good to know that children are learning that there were many more people than just Rosa Parks and Doctor King who brought us to this day. And how many more of you we need to take us the rest of the way to true social and economic justice. Peace & love, Maria
