A message from Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:
It has been a long time coming. After 16 years of rewarding and eventful service, I am retiring from a full-time job with Priests for Life to pursue full-time personal ministry. This transition includes the launching of SPEAK FOR LIFE.
This new transition reminds me of the popular saga of the old bald eagle knocking its beak against a rock, in order that a new, fresh and stronger beak can grow; or a child losing teeth to make way for the new ones; what has served us well can be transformed in the ongoing journey of life.
Throughout my life I have been re-branding, and being renewed and reborn. However, having been born into the King family legacy, two things remain: a love for God and a love for humanity.
Friends, please stay tuned for the next chapters in my life; all sure to include more books, music and film projects; all life affirming activities directed towards serving God, children, families and human dignity, from the womb to the tomb.
Today of course I am praying for everyone impacted by the traumatic events occurring in and around Afghanistan. Also, having lost very close friends to Covid, I remain in prayer for everyone who is impacted personally by, or who has family members and friends impacted by Covid.
This includes about everyone we know.
However, no matter what, we must continue to pray, have faith in God, love and forgive each other, and be kind in the midst of life’s terrible storms.
I have been speaking for life and human dignity all of my life. Even as I move in ahead, I can continue to do nothing less.
In closing, I am praying for you and ask that you pray for me.
Again, stay tuned for the upcoming chapters in a life well lived. God bless you.
