Kneeling players show courage of convictions

first_img“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial ‘outside agitator’ idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.You deplore the demonstrations taking place… But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails to express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations. I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals merely with effects and does not grapple with underlying causes.” — Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.These words from Dr. King are as relevant today as they were on April 16, 1963, when he wrote his very necessary letter from a Birmingham jail after he was incarcerated for peacefully protesting injustice. In solidarity, he protested, understanding that the injustice experienced by one should be shared by all. It’s this spirit of Dr. King that was evident in a few Niskayuna High School football players and a cheerleader who courageously kneeled in solidarity against injustice.In solidarity, we wish to applaud these young leaders. It’s their courage that lets us know that there’s hope for our world. Niskayuna High School may have had a lower score on the scoreboard that night, but Niskayuna High School won. To cultivate minds that unite in solidarity against injustice is to win.Stay encouraged, beautiful spirited young people. We, too, hope that one day, liberty and justice really will be “for all.” Let us all continue to move forward to make this dream a reality for all.Deb PrivottJay PrivottNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Alcona does not become a 2nd amendment sanctuary county

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALCONA, Mich. — Gun rights supporters crowded the Alcona County courthouse this morning, hoping to see their county declared a 2nd amendment sanctuary. While there is no legality behind this title, it does show that the county supports gun rights for their citizens.Last week 2nd amendment supporters gathered at Alpena’s annex building to do the same thing, however that decision was tabled until later this month. At Alcona’s commission meeting Wednesday morning, supporters voiced reasons why they support this resolution. Chair of Alcona County Republicans, Carrie Mullins said, “It’s not just about hunting. It’s about protecting one’s self, protecting others, and it’s a god–given right. Up here, that’s one of the things we do focus on. Don’t take our guns.” Over a dozen attendees spoke up during the public comment portion of the meeting, and most of them were concerned about current attempts to change gun laws, especially in Virginia.The board of commissioners voted unanimously to approve the resolution, but before they did, there was a significant amendment added. The word sanctuary had been removed. However, the county’s support of the 2nd amendment was made clear. Because the resolution carries no legal changes, chairman of the board, Craig Johnston agreed that this resolution is more of a statement from the commissioners and Alcona’s citizens. “Well I think the statement is that, as the board of commissioners, we will not tolerate infringements on 2nd amendment rights,” he said. “We’ll be very on guard for that happening. I’m sure this group of people will make sure we’re on guard. If anything comes along we will hear from them.”David Adams is a volunteer with Michigan for 2A Counties and he was the one to present the resolution. He said that, overall, he’s satisfied with the outcome. “Here in Alcona County I believe we’re in good shape. The amended resolution will be sent to Lansing and so forth, and I think that was the main purpose to get the word out that we’re not moving on this issue.”While the board of commissioners voiced their support for 2nd amendment rights in their county, it was decided that Alcona will not become a 2nd amendment sanctuary. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona County, Alcona County RepublicansContinue ReadingPrevious Huron Pines making the most of the Emily Min Hunt Nature PreserveNext State of Michigan offers resources about auto insurance laws ahead of July 1 changeslast_img read more
