Alveda King Calls for Nonviolent Unity after Rittenhouse Not Guilty Verdict: 'As One Blood, One Human Race, We CAN Resolve Our Differences Peacefully'

Dr. Alveda C. King : Nov 19, 2021  Christian Newswire

"...In Mark 4:39, Jesus calmed the storm and commanded, 'Peace, be still.' We must pray together for that same peace to calm the storm, so that our nation can begin to heal and come together as one nation under God..."

(Atlanta, GA) — UPDATE: On Friday, the Jurors in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial declared him not guilty on all counts.

[Earlier] [Christian Newswire] As the nation awaited the Rittenhouse verdict, Alveda King called for prayers, wisdom and nonviolent unity with the following statement: (Screengrab image)

"Whenever emotions are high, and threats of racial unrest mount, those who believe in prayer must rise to the occasion. That time is now. In Georgia, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma, there are situations that are simmering; causing fear, anger, and confusion. These situations should be answered with wisdom and non-violence. This is an urgent clarion call to leaders and communities at large to pray and unify with love and human dignity as we respond to our concerns with nonviolent action.

"As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: 'Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.'

"In Mark 4:39, Jesus calmed the storm and commanded, 'Peace, be still.' We must pray together for that same peace to calm the storm, so that our nation can begin to heal and come together as one nation under God.

"As one blood, one human race, we CAN resolve our differences peacefully." -Alveda King
