Now is the Time We All Need A Great Leader~

‘We need words and acts of wisdom, ethics, and compassion, from our leaders’  Cindy Knoke

We need words and acts of wisdom, ethics and compassion, from our leaders now more than ever. Since this is utterly lacking, take heart from the words of a truly gifted leader that could never be more relevant than today.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

“Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963

“Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.”

“I Have a Dream”, Washington, D.C., August 28, 1963

My heart breaks for George Floyd, his family, and our country. Are we not better people than this?

There are no cheers…

  1. I’m seeing alot of MLK posts lately. I know it’s so goddamned ugly Rob, but the purge is on, and that fascist wannabe dicktator will get his Karma.<3

      1. Yes, I saw that, Rob. The bizarre combination comes into my mind — of the taunt “lair, liar pants on fire!” and the determined denial of so many people. They’d deny it if their pants literally were on fire…

  2. My oh my, do we need a leader, Robert. We’ve needed one for over 3 years. I won’t go off on a Trump rant, but do I ever miss Obama. I could cry. A great post from Cindy. Let’s just hope that as a nation and world we come through this having learned something and resolved to work for a wiser, kinder future. ❤ Be well, my friend. ❤

    1. Well, mostly just one and the bottom feeders he came with. We have extraordinary leaders of vision and compassion in thd United States. Any of the top contender sn the democratic primary would have made a splendid President. What have we learned from this? A man with charisma and no moral center makes a toxic leader..


  3. I’ve seen a few posts similar to this, quoting Martin Luther King and each time I find myself thinking why is it his words are still so relevant today – why haven’t we listened and learned?

    1. I think we have changed things. Just four short years ago, Barack Obama was still making history, less than five years ago we celebrated the right to a same sex marriage. We didn’t expect a world leader of Putin’s stature to launch a military strike in the form of a psychological attack on civilians, though I can’t imagine why. Take hope, the world is more enlightened than Putin’s cynical propaganda wants us to think it is.
