When it comes to kids, it’s time for a ‘fierce urgency of now’
When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the March on Washington, he described a “fierce urgency of now.” He reminded a divided nation that we need one another, and that we are stronger when we march forward, together. “We cannot walk alone,” he said. “And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.” A half century later, Dr. King’s words still have great meaning and life.
