Alveda needs your help!

Friends, I need your help this morning! Call in to Local radio stations across America, especially those popular with young listners and gospel stations. Call the African American Radio talk show hosts. Email them too! Blog about this please! They are saying that I am against Rev. Al Sharpton’s March. I’m not. I am simply speaking at another Rally. Glenn Beck invited me to his Rally. Rev. Sharpton did not invite me to his March. Glenn booked the Lincoln Memorial for his Rally long before Rev. Sharpton even announced his March. If the Lincoln Memorial was so important for Rev. Sharpton, why didn’t he book it before Glenn did? I didn’t say that my Uncle, Dr. King would not go to Rev. Shaprton’s March. What I said is that Martin Luther King, Jr. would like to see unity tomorrow, and that even when we disagree with someone, we must have faith, hope and love for a better tomorrow. I am speaking at the Glenn Beck Rally about faith, hope, love and honor. The NAACP and some other African Americans are saying that Alveda King is hijacking the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. I am saying that as Dr. King’s blood relative, I have a dream, it’s in my genes. How can I hijack myself?

    Be careful, do not be goaded into emotions that can cause dissension. If there is a misunderstanding among church service, is very common everywhere .. you need not ask for the support of others, leave it to God, He will declare what is right or wrong. greeting

    I am blogging about you today, Alveda. God bless you and the others who are standing for unity, hope, faith and love. Love WILL prevail, so please do not give up faith or hope!

    “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness. For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Jesus, Matthew 5:10-11

    Stand strong we stand with you and we love you through He who first loved us.

  3. Here’s some help. I searched “define: Honor” which means personal integrity. Today many do not have enough integrity but that can change.
    Character is what you care about and act on: char-actor. If you care about Jesus Christ then you love His absolute perfection. When He is the content of your character, there is no condemnation. So ideally you will have the content in your character that cannot be judged but is true in every respect.

    The “all faiths” message is wrong. The Koran is not about the God of Ishmael but it’s about a god which cannot beget. Jesus told us when we die we are as angels which do not marry. So the god of Islam is an angel which promotes hate, terror, and hell on earth. We need to pray for everyone to turn their faith toward the love and absolute perfection of Jesus Christ.

  4. ninek says:

    You are doing the right thing; Sharpton is always dividing people. He is always working against unity and trying to stir up anger between people. He is idle where there is much work to be done, and busy where he is not wanted nor needed. You’re awesome, Alveda.

  5. Vicki says:

    Praying for you Dr. King!

    Doing my part in making it on the local talk show this morning in Tucson!

  7. Jennifer says:

    I will be lifting you up in prayer. Keep fighting the good fight Alveda we love you. TRUTH will win! Keep loving and having hope.

  8. Marissa Lynn says:

    God bless you Dr. King!!! I am praying for you all tomorrow!!

  9. JoAnne Anderson says:

    Dr. King, You are an angel from GOD, you fill my heart with hope, do not be daunted by dissenters, we know the word is the Truth, no lie can circumvent the truth. You are the messenger of the essences of you heritage, keep it up, and GOD bless you!
    I am sure that your Grand-father, Father and Uncle are so proud of you for standing up!

  11. Steve Ladd says:

    I have long been a supporter of Dr. Martin Luther King, in the 70′s brough Dr. Ralph Abernathy to marches and rallies. I understand your decision, but unfortunately you are giving enormous added credibility to a man who is one of the most egregious partisan performers in the battle between left and right. Surely, there’s a better way than appearing at this rally to support the ideas of faith, hope and love. I hope you reconsider your decision.

  12. Diann Freeman says:

    I am greatly disturbed that you are making a mockery of what the late Dr. King meant to his family and to the world. I will pray that satan does not get the rest of your soul.

  13. Deshawn says:

    There is absolutely no way that I can understand how you support Glenn Beck, and you know better, you listen to the things that he says and you ingnore the race baiting, no sympathy for the less fortunate. If your had lived and plan to support Beck at the rally, he would be just as wrong as you are, there is no excuse you can come up with for flat out ignorance, your being used, and history will not forgive your name.

  14. Marc J. Sosnowski says:

    Dear Dr. King, when are you coming to Detroit? I am going door-to-door on the west side of the City, in my campaign for U.S. Congress to unseat the pro-abortionist, John Conyers. I welcome the opportunity to bring you to a local venue, to share your story, as we both proclaim the Truth. Please call me, at 313.319.8676.

    Thank You Dr King, American values are colorblind. We need to stay together, inclusive, ML King’s way. The historical progress of these American values towards a more perfect union is possessed by all Americans.
    Your CSM article links an article from 9-27-01 CSM “Why They Hate Us”. It is amazingly weak on history, and submissive to Islam. If you are going to link something try Bernard Lewis or Robert Spencer or any of the wonderful women writers who shine light on the “governing bodies” of the Islamic World. Pablum and Appeasement perpetuate the war (of their choosing) in the long run. Tom Roderick, San Diego,Ca

  16. Charlotte Dancy says:

    You are a disgrace – to the King Family and African Americans. Get a life of your own rather than honing in on MLK’s legacy. You fail miserably in replicating his dream.

  17. Mark Meyers says:

    Dr. King, I pray for you and Priests for Life daily. I had the pleasure of talking with Father Frank last January in Terre Haute. My Facebook page proudly displays a picture of us.
    I commend you on your work. You are the true carrier of the message of your uncle. I am starting my third year of formation to become ordained as a deacon in the Catholic Church. I try to keep life and God in the forefront of my ministry.
    Keep up the good work and make sure to tell Glenn he is also in my prayers. Mark Meyers, humble servant of God

  18. Tom says:

    You ask how can you hijack yourself? That is not an answer to the observation the NAACP and others were positing. They are saying it is not right or honest to align yourself with those who hold positions that disrespect the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. and justify it by saying your blood relation to this great man makes anything you say or do correct or righteous. Are you saying because you’re his niece that anything you do is beyond criticism or reproach? You can’t support evil and say it’s ok because you have a righteous cause and you’re Dr. King’s niece. Also, doesn’t his dream belong to everyone? Isn’t his dream for all people? It’s not just for the King family. Trying to eliminate the high level of black children being aborted is certainly a tragic story. But in supporting that, how can you support, by lending your voice and presence to conservative causes, policies which lead to the kind of despair, hope-killing and humanity crushing environments which are most likely major contributors to many women aborting their children which you say you are against? Are you sure you’re not contributing to higher levels of abortion rather than lower? I hope you reconsider your participation in Fox News conservative promotions. I think you will have more success in reducing abortions if women have hope and a more fair chance in life. If they think they can get a job, make a living, support their family and live in dignity. What do you think?

  19. Pam Jackson says:

    Dr. King,
    Thank you for your courage – I pray that you are protected tomorrow as you speak for all of us who love our country and know that we need to acknowledge God and ask for his grace and protection. We must also ask for his forgiveness for not treating all His children equally (from conception to natural death). And we must demand no less from our leaders they must be God fearing defenders of ALL human life. Dr. Martin Luther King must be beaming down at you from heaven for your courage, faith and love. God bless you and may God Bless America. Laus Deo!

  20. Wendy Newton says:

    Dear Dr. King,

    I was able to see you when you were on Beck’s program recently, and you gave me chill bumps. You made me realize that there is hope for this country and I did understand your Uncles speech. I have found that many black leaders today twist and turn that speech to fit their needs. I know that racism does still exists, but I thought as a country we were making great progress with the election of Obama, although I did not vote for him (Im strictly conservative) I was proud of this country. But in my opinion Obama has set race relations back. So I thank you for your beliefs and speaking at Becks Rally. God Bless you and Thank you

  21. Devon Williams says:

    “I am saying that as Dr. King’s blood relative, I have a dream, it’s in my genes. How can I hijack myself? ”

    Blood and genes don’t give you “the dream” as I am sure you gathered from your late uncle and through experience. Humanity and humility are where the dream comes from and until you realize that you will be no worthy “heir” to Dr. Kings legacy.

    As far as I am concerned, your statements are offensive to all Americans; Black white blood relative or not we are all brothers and sisters.

  22. Jack Dyke and Family says:

    Dr King

    Good for you, its going to take all Americans to stand up to some of the leaders who perpetuate Black Americans being second class citizens. I find it unbelieveable, if you think it it will probably come true, Black and White society have many problems, we both have haters and probably will have from now own but I feel the magority of us Americans have our own problems issues etc that we can not expend the energy it takes to hate someone else. I would say all Americans need to get involved, listen closely, work hard to give a better life to their children, education, keep them out of gangs, jail and feeling like they are down before they even start. My parents come form a poor white southern families, we were not worth a whole lot as far as net worth or pocessions but my father joined the Army fought in two wars, 5 bronze stars in WWII and a Purple Heart, retired and worked all of his life to give all of his kids a better life and opportunity, my mom worked from the time we could go to school up till she was 70 something just to get ahead and have a bette life for us. I wished everybody had parents like mine but I giess thast not possible anyway everybody in America can do better with the support of their family and community. Maybe its small steps and it takes several generations but with hard work, honesty and going to school everyone can be equally successful! I hope you can help America bring all people who feel they are on the fringe of society into the mainstream, stop the prisons from filling up more and give every child hope of a better life no matter what color they are. Bless you and your family take care and keep up the good work, we are all Americans and its time we all realize it!

  23. KC says:

    Dear Dr. King – God bless you for all you do. I am a military wife, very pro-life so I appreciate all the work you do with Priests For Life. My husband is stationed in Okinawa, Japan – though deployed, right now – and I keep up with the news back home. I just heard about Glenn Beck’s rally yesterday and heard about you speaking there. I also heard about the trouble you encountered during the Priests For Life rally. I am so sorry you are dealing with this and I am sure it hurts to feel alienated by members of your own race. This is unfair because they are being deliberately misinformed. I grew up believing my Republican-leaning views were correct…but ashamed that some thought my views were uneducated, racist, hillbilly, or stupid. What is so wrong about loving your country and the values it was founded upon? I fully admit I didn’t know my history, either, or I would have been able to counter their claims of the GOP being “racist” which became even louder after we received our first African-American president.

    I admit my own ignorance. They were right – I WAS uneducated. See, I didn’t know Lincoln’s views were Republican. I didn’t know the Democratic party would not allow blacks to register to vote with their party (Condi Rice has said that’s why her own father registered with the Republican party). I didn’t know Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat and longest serving senator, was a member of the KKK. I didn’t know your uncle, the much-beloved Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican…Suddenly, it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders, but it was as if the burden of anger was also placed upon those who have sorely mislabeled the Republican party. I can now fully put all my support to Conservative issues. Their claims of racism are outlandish and downright false. Some of the greatest strides towards civil rights were made by people with my same views, regardless of color.

    You are doing a brave, noble thing by speaking out for what you think is right…and I hope those who are saying such things about you will learn more about the history of those they are being told to hate. How long can you hate a group of people that do not hate you before the truth becomes apparent? Let them hate…but keep speaking the gentle truth. I hope you and the many African-American conservatives out there will continue to speak out against these racist claims and can show how these claims trivialize the real issues facing our country. We need a national re-awakening on the role of race in politics, today. I believe the racial glass ceiling has been removed. It just needs to be removed from the minds of the people, now. Again, God bless you. You are a great American and I think your uncle would be so proud.

  24. Michael Deming says:

    Dr. King,

    I thank you for attending Beck’s rally. We need to tear down these barriers to get America back to the Glory which God can bless us with. Racism and hate is the tool of the Devil.

    God richly Bless you.

  25. observer says:

    so, basically what you are saying is first come, first serve. how easy is it to buy you out. seems there are no values down your alley and of all the scums you join is the one that is supported by klans and facists

  26. Sherri Damron says:

    Great speech @ the Restoring Honor Rally today! God Bless U. :)

  27. Dawn_KJ says:

    Dear Dr. King, it is rather odd and disturbing to me when you mention having MLK’s genes and his dream being in your blood. However, if that’s important to you, I much prefer his son’s abundance of King-genes to yours. Apparently he received the full dose and REALLY gets the idea of The Dream.

    Alveda, you are AWESOME. Your presence and speech at the GB event are most welcome & we need MORE of YOU! I know that God was looking down on you all and smiling. Please be aware that we support you & pray for you. We will ALL do whatever we can to set right the attempt by Progressives to assault you, your character & your presence today. By your example of doing the right thing we will try to live our lives every day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart & God Bless You.

  30. Ed says:

    HalleluYAH Alveda has done more for the unity of this Nation under G-D than so many wow I loved her words of LOVE of G-D thru JESUS to all of our people shalom shalom the Blessings of the L-RD even more Alveda your words of inspiration should hit home to every American and those outside of America

  31. Renee Felton says:

    I watched you today on TV at the rally…. I was so impressed that you showed up as a speaker I cried… How wonderful for you to attend and be a positive example… I hope that your speech can close the gap between blacks and whites so that we can all realize we are all Americans, we are on the same team and the color of our skin isn’t important…. that we all need to stick together for what we believe in. You are truly remarkable. Thank you so much!

  32. Donna Marshall says:

    Dr. King,
    I am ashamed to say that I have never (to my knowledge) read the words of your great uncle. Today I found the website mlkonline.net. I am reading the letter from the Birmingham jail. WOW! How he articulated the plight is amazing and awe inspiring. How he articulated the reason, need for non-violent direct action – you could hear the love and patience in his words! I am committed to reading the words posted in all his speeches and teaching them to my children!

    Thank you for speaking at the GB rally today. I’m sure you’re uncle is proud of you! God bless your AMAZING family!

  33. Cyndi Davis says:

    Dr. King,

    I just wanted to convey my admiration and appreciation to you for your participation in the Restoring Honor Rally today in Washington, D.C. I so admire your courage and conviction for your beliefs. Thank you for your words today. I’m certain your Uncle was smiling down with pride and joy in what he saw in you today. May God bless you and your family today and all the days of your life.

  34. Donna Hedricks says:

    Dear Dr. King,

    You don’t know me, and I have only been introduced to you in recent weeks by watching the Glenn Beck show.

    I want to Thank you Dr. King for your inspirational words on 8-28-10. You voice and your message touched my heart just as your Uncle did when I first learned of it.

    I was only two when he spoke it, but my parents made sure that I heard his words. I grew up in the farm country of Pennsylvania. My grandparents were Mennonite. Color of our skin never played a part in our family as we were taught to live by God’s word. We see your heart. We know by your words and your actions that you see ours, too. We are one, united by God. Thank you for extending your hand and know that we have always extended our hand to you and your family in our prayers.

    As desnedents of the original antibaptists, we know the legacy of the original Martin Luther who lived six hundred years ago. He, like your family was instrumental in freeing all people in the name of God. I to have a dream, and today I was awake to see it.

    God Bless you,
    Donna Hedricks

  35. Mary Gray Whitcomb says:

    Dear Dr. King
    I want to thank you for speaking at the Restoring Honor Rally. Your words were so powerful and filled with so much hope and love. I am sorry that we are a country filled with such division but I assure you that your words today filled THIS woman’s heart. Your dedication to LIFE is an inspiration. God bless you and bless your work. You will remain in my prayers.

  36. Jen says:

    Amen! Do not let your voice be silenced Alveda! You keep on bearing witness of the truth, wherever you may find it!

  37. VIC BULAON says:

    God Bless you for your courage and wisdom. As an American who was naturalized 28 years ago, your Uncle’s leagacy has opened so many opportunities for me as a member of a minority group. You carry on his legacy with great honor and inspiration.

  38. Cheryl Thomas says:

    Dr. King, you are such a precious lady and the sweet gentle, gracious spirit of God is reflected in your face, your voice and your manner.
    I saw you yesterday on the Restoring Honor and again on Geraldo last night.
    I believe that you are carrying the torch forward, not only for the Civil Rights movement but for those who have no voice, the unborn.
    You are bold and unwavering in your desire to see true liberation and I applaud you!
    May God in His awesome power and strength enable you to shine forth His glory and be a Deborah to this generation, leading them to shake off the shackles of the enemy. Exposing the lies and proclaiming the truth that sets all people free.
    The Lord is your comfort and your strength Dr. King. Look to Him alone for approval.
    Looking for that day when He will say to you “well done my good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord”

  39. Faye Abraham says:

    Dear Dr. King,

    With your words and your actions, you have drawn a line in the sand for those who truly seek a “coming together” of minds and of intent. I heard just this past week that a holy life is a life of love. You have shown us how to truly seek to live that life. What an inspiration you are!
    I watched on different television stations as you neither condemned nor ridiculed those who spoke ill of you or who disagreed with you; you just called them and us to the “more perfect way” of respecting each other even if we disagree — that is how the discourse begins! You have touched my life — and I’m sure the lives of others — in ways you cannot imagine. Thank you.

  40. Catherine says:

    Dr. King,

    I happened to turn on Fox News and saw Geraldo’s show about Glenn Beck’s rally. Although you were not given much of an opportunity to speak, you inspired and touched my heart. You radiated patience, peace, courage, unity, and love. I thought to myself, this lady understands. She gets it that this is not about divisions. We are all one. Only in unity and love will this country heal and move forward. Thank you for being the voice of truth, courage, and unity. I prayed God would send someone to help and lead His people in this time. Saturday evening, I saw Jesus in you. I saw the fruits of the Holy Spirit. I pray that God will continue to bless and use you to witness to faith, truth, and love. My God bless you abundantly for your faithfulness.

  41. Barbara Snell says:

    God Bless you Dr. King and thank you for trying to help restore God to his rightful place in our society. My husband and I watched you on Glenn Beck’s “Let’s put God back in America” get together. Although we were born white, we are ALL God’s children. Please don’t let anyone deter you from your good works. You are beautiful in our eyes.

  42. shirley says:

    This should be about coming together no matter what color you are. We need to restore America with faith,hope,and charity. It’s said that people miss repersented what you say. I think Rev Sharpton should have come to you to find out what you really said, instead of relying on second hand information. Thank you for stand firm in your true believes. My prayer is for the people to have wisdom to seek the truth in the Holy Bible and Gods word. God will bless you in your efforts to bring the truth to the people of the USA. Your Uncle would be elited to know you are carring on with the dream he had.

  43. Terrie S says:

    Thank you for being such an inspiration. May God bless you for your faithfulness. You are such a wonderful example of a Godly women. My prayers are with you.
