A Pulpit Gone Silent to Soon

This is inside the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA.  Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. gave sermons from this pulpit, a recording of Dr. King plays and yet as it plays there is a solemn silence while visitors sit and listen.  When you walk in and climb the stairs you hear his voice and for a brief second he is alive and you are climbing the stairs to witness one of the great sermons of Doctor Kings’.

It’s hard not to be in this place and feel it in your heart as  the words echo throughout, it’s hard to stop your mind from placing yourself in the room, in that place, feeling the energy.

There is a movie you can watch back at the center, the center is separate from the church across the street, if you come to Atlanta you have to visit. 

The movie drove me to tears, the thought of pure evil that one human could have towards another just because they are of a different color is sad, heartbreaking and made me angry.  My friends, my coworkers, my fellow human beings should never have to suffer such hatred.

A piece of music to share for today, this is part 3 of the song, a really interesting song. This part 3 wraps up an inspiring work of music.  Check it out, the artist is Moodsings, the album, Moodfood and this song is Spiritual High Part 3.
