Where Do We Go From Here?



Where do we go from here? It has been fifty-two years since Martin Luther King, Jr. walked this earth, but his prophetic question of chaos or community remains the most consequential question of our time. King spoke out against a war that was costing both lives and our moral standing worldwide. Today, we face another war. Not on the battlefields of Southeast Asia, but in nursing homes and local hospitals, to save the lives of people afflicted with COVID-19. King did not face a pandemic; he did, however, live in a period which presented a choice to leaders as well as everyday citizens, one that would advance the nation further into a dark abyss or lift us up to new heights of civility and human decency. For King, the choice was clear: community, not chaos. This is where we go from here.
