“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools.” Dr. MLK, Jr.

Staten Island, NY – In route for a prayer vigil and march in SELMA, during an exclusive early morning report, Alveda King, FOX NEWS Contributor, KING RULES author and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life tells FOX that “all eyes are now on Charleston. Violence is still looming and lurking.

“This isn’t time for violent riots or race baiting. It’s time for prayer and leadership. Officials at all levels, mayor, police, governor, National Guard, congress, president need to pray and enforce peace and justice.

“By the way, evil knows no color. My grandmother Alberta King was shot down and killed by a crazed black man while playing the organ in Ebenezer Church in Atlanta in 1974. My mother Naomi King, Daddy AD’s wife was in the ambulance with BigMama when she died. We didn’t riot, we prayed. Decisive prayerful and positive action is needed now! Granddaddy King said pray and forgive.

“Pray, don’t riot. People are being slaughtered in the womb, in their beds, and, for God’s sake, while worshipping in church. This isn’t just about race. It’s time for the human race of Acts 17:26 to PRAY FOR AMERICA!”

    Aveda King is a uniter not a divider. I will pray for her for us and for America Rome 12:21

    Alveda is so right. Prayer is what is needed to stop all the hatred and violence going on. We need to also bring prayer back in the public forum otherwise things may get worse. Thank you, Alveda, for your wise insight which really comes from the Holy Spirit.

    Bless you, Alveda, for speaking the truth. Injustice and untruth know no color or race.

  5. David says:

    I am not even an American but I commend you on your efforts to forge peace amongst the race groups in the U.S., in the face of a president who seems determined to promote division and encourage hatred amongst the peoples of the country. I fear yours is an uphill battle against those forces that are bent on fanning the fires of hate.

    During the last year of Apartheid, on 25 July 1993, in our country, South Africa, four black gunmen rushed into Saint James Anglican Church in Kenilworth Cape Town and opened fire on the presumedmostly white congregation. (In fact about 30% of the congregation were people of colour). During the massacre, 11 members of the congregation were killed and 58 wounded. (Four of those killed were Rissian seamen).
    In 1994 South Africa became a democratic country giving ALL citizens the right to vote. In 1998 the attackers were granted amnesty, after their participation in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
    (See details in Wikipedia). Family member effected gave reconciliation.
    On 28 November 1992, after Nelson Mandela had been released from jail, and after a referendum had been taken amongst the White population, who voted that black people should be given equality in voting, black revolutionist stormed the King Willianstown Golf club, killing 4 people.
    Also, on 31 December 1993, an attack was made at Heidelberg Tavern, ondervatory Cape Town, killing four patrons.
    Ballistics showed that the guns used were the same guns used in the St James Church massacre.
    But massacres contimue, especially by black people on white farmers. Gang wars in the Northern Suburbs of Port Elizanet reached such high levels that the Army was called in to ensure temporary peace.
    My own cousin Danny Tarr, together with his mother in law, father in law, as well as his own two daughters, was killed in Harrare, Zimbabwe in an assassination.
    What is the answer?
    Jesus is the answer. He brings peace, and as we look around the world at the violent acts of terrorism by Muslims – noted as Muslim extremists, it’s very ibvious He is the only answer.
    Let us live in peace with each other.
