"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
February is "Black History Month" in America. In commemoration, we are "boots on the ground" today with a visit to the Civil Rights Museum in Jackson, Mississippi. Jackson is also the seat of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization pending U.S. Supreme Court case dealing with the constitutionality of a 2018 Mississippi state law that banned abortion operations after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy.
We visit America's "Black History" today with hope ever rising in our hearts, for the human dignity of all Americans and all humanity, from the womb to the tomb, as we pray to end the injustices that sadly have taken place on the soil of our own country.
Meanwhile, with repentant and forgiving hearts, we give thanks for those who — past and present — are brave enough to fight for the freedom of all Americans.
As we present the AFPI "Medal of Freedom" to African American patriots in Jackson, let us remember that justice, in every decade and generation, does not come quickly; or easily.
For instance, for five decades, our nation lived with the consequences of the U.S. Supreme Court's separate but equal ruling. By God's grace, the Supreme Court eventually acknowledged and overturned that disastrous and immoral decision.
However, with the ruling in favor of legal abortion nearly five decades ago, the U.S. Supreme Court wrongly decided to strip states of their power to regulate women's health and protect the lives of the unborn.
Could there be any greater injustice than robbing the lives of our nation's most vulnerable citizens – our unborn babies?
Today, the Court faces an opportunity to correct another egregious wrong. With the Dobbs VS Jackson case the US Supreme Court is now considering whether to overturn the ruling in favor of abortion that allows the killing of young innocent humans in the womb. America, now is the time to right this wrong.
"Truth crushed to earth shall rise again. -- William Cullen Bryant.
We pray that the Justices will follow the example of their predecessors who bravely struck down flawed legal precedent despite the loudest elements of public opinion demanding they do otherwise.
History has not always been kind to those who are willing to step out on a limb and fight for the dignity of all human lives, regardless of socioeconomic conditions; from the womb to the tomb. So today with our visit of America's Black History, we see and remember not only the wrongs. We celebrate human dignity, and build upon the victories as we right the injustices of abortion, skin color racism, and all crimes against humanity.

Finally, my prayer today from the ground in Jackson, Mississippi, is this: May a Dobbs victory be an American standard; and another benevolent exception to the rule. Regardless of gestational age or skin color, let righteous justice prevail; for the one blood/one human race. God bless America.
