ATLANTA, May 25, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Evangelist Alveda King:
On Monday we will celebrate Memorial Day thanking God for our active members of our military and our veterans and their families. As one who has had active members of the military in my own family, I know the personal care and the prayers that always go forth for our soldiers.
Recently I shared a blog about the G.I. Bill of 1944. In that light, much has been revealed regarding racial discrimination in our country with the enduring hope that we will continue to come together in faith, hope and love praying for this nation. Although many Americans were helped by the G.I. Bill, much of that help was afforded to Caucasian Americans at the expense of many African Americans who are still losing out on benefits today due to racial discrimination.
Today, we are at a crossroad in our nation as President Trump leads the battle to make America great again. Our prayers remain with our President and his administration.
Moving forward, Juneteenth is coming up in just a few weeks. This US holiday commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the state of Texas on June 19, 1865, as well as the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. In celebration of Juneteenth at Civil Rights for the Unborn we are continuing to cry out for justice and the sanctity of life for all Americans, born and unborn. Towards that goal, we ask you to join the movement by signing on to an open letter to Congressional members encouraging them to support The Prison Reform and Redemption Act (H.R. 3356). Also, please support the anti-abortion provisions to the Title X act.
Furthermore, this summer we'll be reaching out to Starbucks, Waffle House and other organizations that are having challenges with the racial issues that are trying to tear up our country. The winds of racial reconciliation are blowing across the world as is evidenced by the new Royal Wedding. We believe that as One Race/One Blood (Acts 17:26) we can learn to live together as brothers and sisters and not perish together as fools. Please join us in the battle for the born and unborn; for justice for ALL.
President Donald Trump has been a stalwart defender of justice as evidenced by his stance for the sanctity of life and staunch support of racial reconciliation as evidenced by his signing of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park Act and, most recently, granting a posthumous pardon of the first African American Heavyweight Champion of the World, John Arthur "Jack" Johnson.
Finally, as we celebrate this Memorial Day weekend let's not forget that as our military fights for our freedom we at home must fight for the freedom of our unborn brothers and sisters struggling to escape and survive abortion.
