In September last year, Orlando, FL Officer, Dennis Turner, arrested a 6-year-old Black girl, Kaia Rolle for throwing a tantrum at school. #KaiaRolle’s grandmother, Meralyn Kirkland, didn’t get a call until she was already being taken into custody. She was restrained with zip ties, fingerprinted and had a mugshot taken. When #MeralynKirkland tried to explain that Rolle suffers with sleep-apnea, and at age 6, it caused her to sometimes act out, #DennisTurner dismissed the explanation, making a false equivalency by saying he too suffers with sleep-apnea, but it doesn’t make him lash out. The same day, he arrested another 6-year-old, but the process was interrupted before being completed. State Attorney Aramis Ayala had the charges dropped against the children, saying “I refuse to knowingly play any role in the school-to-prison pipeline.” Turner was suspended and then promptly fired. This week the bodycam footage was released, showing the incident as it happened. No 6-year-old child should be put through this kind of treatment. There are ways to deal with a child’s disobedience, disrespect, and tantrums. Arresting them is not the go-to answer. Rolle should have received caring, compassionate correction.

"Well, life for none of us has been a crystal stair, but we must keep moving. We must keep going. And so, if you can't fly, run. If you can't run, walk. If you can't walk, crawl. But by all means, keep moving."-Martin Luther King Jr. 1967.
Karlene selected parts of this inspirational quotation, to propel her forward, and what better place to put it than on her foot! Thank you!

The great men and women of history will always be relevant and so will their words and messages. One excellent example is the words of the great leader, minister, and activist Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. 
In 1957 he was elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization for the civil rights movement inspired by Gandhi. Between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over 2500 times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama providing what he called a coalition of conscience and inspiring his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, a manifesto of the Negro revolution. He planned the drives in Alabama for the registration of Negroes as voters; directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, “l Have a Dream”, conferred with President John F. Kennedy and campaigned for President Lyndon B. Johnson; he was arrested upwards of twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963, and became not only the symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure.

At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated. 
Gone but never forgotten his words still ring true. Also when speaking of climate change. If we cannot do great things each of us can make a small impact in our own way.

There are few giants in history to match Martin Luther King Jr., and even fewer who had the power to move so many with so few words. The Baptist minister, activist and civil rights hero felt the sting of segregation in his youth, and suffered from depression for much of his life. Nevertheless, he overcame such enormous adversity, excelling academically and rising to become one of history’s most transformative and inspirational figures.

ये सच है कि जननायक किसी भी आंदोलन की पंक्ति में सबसे आगे होते हैं लेकिन इससे उन लोगों की भूमिका कम नहीं हो जाती जो सामने नहीं आते लेकिन उनके बनाए साझा रास्ते पर ही चलकर कोई भी आंदोलन मंजिल पाता है. ऐसे एक जननायक थे मार्टिन लूथर किंग जूनियर और पिछली पंक्ति में खड़े होने वाले बेयार्ड रस्टिन. #martinlutherkingjr #bayardrustin #activism #civilrights #blackrights #america #montgomerybusboycott #mahatmagandhi #nonviolencemovement #adamclaytonpowelljr #gayrights #whitehouse #uspresident #barackobama #world #worldnews #hindinews #swarajexpress #newsplatform

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

Today I had the pleasure to meet Nikki Giovanni and hear one of her presentations and some of her poems. As a fellow poet , it was great to hear them as she was able to make topics that are humorous or small yet make them come across as intriguing and profound. After the presentation, the audience was offered a chance to come and ask a question, I decided to ask her for advice on how to inform people of and combat against the harmful systems and issues facing autism. While she did not do to much research into autism itself , she still offered insight that I found to be helpful, that it’s important to be supportive and not try to hide who we are and to ask if the people discriminating against us really see themselves as superior, why would they feel the need to make fun of us and try to silence us? I personally was inspired by former advocacy groups like the civil rights movement to try to make changes for autism and being able to not only listen and meet but to speak to someone with personal insight and had to go against upfront discrimination like segregation was an interesting and important learning experience.
