Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/20/20

We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”   —   Martin Luther King Jr.

(I feel like I cheated a little on today’s Cryptoquote.  I always note the punctuation first, so the “XP.” really stood out.  And, knowing what day it was told me who the author was, and that became like a key for me.  I didn’t even bother trying to identify the Es.  It’s a fine quote.  Dr. King really knew how to turn a phrase. 

It is so disheartening that the U.S. has seen such a revival of racial hatred, over the last 12 years.  It started as an ugly reaction to the election of Barack Obama as President.  He never used it as an excuse, but the undercurrents of racism were palpable.  But the racial vitriol that President Trump spews – on a regular basis – has only emboldened those who merely whispered, snickered, and voted against Obama policy initiatives during 44’s two terms, and they have brought their ugliness out of the shadows.  I had always thought/hoped that racism would just die out – like the dinosaurs – but it seems it was more of a dormant volcano, always too ready to reawaken and blow.  Take heart though in some of Dr. King’s quotes about love.  To keep the faith keep this quote in mind:  “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
