It focuses on those who paved the way for us. Those who understood, the only way we as a people would make it to the promise land, was by banding together, supporting one another and working towards a common vision for the betterment of us all.
My hope, is that we as a people, not only walk in their footsteps across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, but let us understand and continue the vision to follow their examples in our daily lives and our communities.
"Where there is no vision, the people perish." - Proverbs 29:18
