A busy weekend in New Rochelle of events honoring the life and legacy of Dr. King — a dinner sponsored by the Coalition for Mutual Respect on Friday night, volunteer service activities at Iona on Saturday, a youth oratorical contest at Shiloh Baptist Church on Sunday morning, a Jubilee celebration at Bethesda Baptist Church on Sunday afternoon, and the annual Drum Major breakfast sponsored by WestCOP this morning.

At a time when it too often feels as though our nation is moving backwards, I am proud to be part of a community that celebrates and exemplifies the inclusive values for which Dr. King lived and died. May the day come soon when brotherhood and sisterhood extends from sea to shining sea.
