"It’s morning time. The alarm clock has already gone off and we’ve worn out the snooze button. It’s time to get up, turn off the alarm clock, and start a new day. Weeping time is over. And I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of weeping. I’m tired of weeping over the murder of black boys. I’m tired of weeping over the abuse of young children. I’m tired of weeping over the sexual exploitation of women. I’m tired of weeping about the economic exploitation of a powerless people…. I’m tired of weeping over racial arrogance and racial ignorance. Wake up, people. It’s morning time. It may seem that we haven’t gained much ground since we lost Dr. King, but we’ve made it this far by keeping our faith, by leaning on the Lord."
