Hi Shannon. Initially, I thought this was going to be a fluff piece, but as I read on I realize how very important this is. Your final paragraph of what MLKjr said was quite profound. I really speaks to all of us young and old. Stopping a conversation with your peers and saying you do not agree with a racist statement is very hard, but whoever said life was easy.

Thank you for writing this.
