When Will We Hear Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s Call to End Poverty? 1/18/09 photos

KW: Ian and I attended an interfaith, multi-cultural prayer service tonight at St. Matthew’s Church in Dix Hills. We went for a variety of reasons: it was about affordable housing and addressing poverty; it was in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Fred Brewington – civil rights attorney and preacher – was giving the homily; and some of our friends were performing music. It was a great evening of reflection and fellowship.

Many of the people there are more hopeful about Barack Obama and his promises than we are. One man on the Noah’s pudding* line said: “It gave a new meaning to sing ‘We Shall Overcome’, now that we have, in a way.'” So, even though I have my reservations about Obama, and especially knowing that Obama wants more war in Afghanistan, it is interesting to be in the midst of people’s optimism, and to think that at least something happened, at least America elected an African American President.
