A sad truth

Whoever put together the first page of the Sunday edition either had no eye for irony or was simply illustrating a sad truth about our country.

Next to the heading about “Honoring King’s Legacy” was another headline revealing that “Gun Sales Spike.”

Dr. King was a man of peace whose passive resistance was a model of how non-violence can accomplish the seemingly impossible. The resistance to all forms of gun control–or even reasoned debate on the issue–speaks volumes about the long road America still has to take to be the beacon of hope that it likes to consider itself.
