Rev. Perry Crenshaw, Pastor of Warren United Methodist
Cheryl Smith, Editor, Dallas Weekly Newspaper
foremost, we would like to honor two guiding lights of the
Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and Ms. Rosa Parks -
who taught us to view one another, not through a lens of
color, but of character …
and most of all, through a lens of Love.
Mike, "if it was not for Rosa Parks, and if it were not for
Martin Luther King Jr. none of the immigrants would have made it to
America, I am here today because of them and I owe my
gratitude to them".
It was their effort that lifted a huge burden from American
psyche and freed every one's conscience in America. Our open
minds and open heart are the reason for our relative joy and
peace. We need to do more and welcome and encourage
individuals regardless of their affiliation. It is because
of that attitude America is where it is today.
