nds, prayed, sang.

People spoke of the struggle, of the fight for equality, of the need to recognize the worth of individuals no matter who they are. Everywhere – across the country and across Kershaw County -- people remembered powerful words, felt their souls stirring in response to impassioned calls to action, vowed to move forward in concerted effort to be a colorblind society.

We do this every year for the same reason we commemorate many people and events – because we need to do so. We need to remember the life of this man, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the impact he made in his short time here. We need to celebrate his accomplishments, his victories; we need to honor his legacy. And we need to do it every day.

By remembering, by celebrating, by renewing resolve to move forward, we not only celebrate the man and the profound truths he  continually laid bare before the world, we also celebrate and remember those who made positive impacts in their own ways and times. There are many people who did and do brave and wonderful things – and their actions and examples, known or unsung, are the true legacy of Dr. King.

We need to learn, we need to keep trying.

We need to always remember.
