Open Comment to US Rep. Gregory W. Meeks, NY 5 CD
President Obama has given us an OUT, if we can get our congressional representatives to listen to the American people who believe in peace. The following was posted on US Representative Gregory W. Meeks's Facebook page, under some MLK 50th Anniversary photos. Please say something to YOUR congress member about #NoWarWithSyria.
Please say NO to the President's request for confirmation of a surgical strike. A humanitarian crisis should not be addressed by compounding it. Dr. King would be appalled. Go read HIS Nobel Peace prize speech or the speech he gave at Riverside Church about Vietnam. Do not, please, allow the President to add "deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars" as "Returning violence for violence multiplies the violence." We must not multiply the evil. Please listen to Martin Luther King Jr. and say no to President Obama.
PS I live in your district by Jamaica Ave in Richmond Hill. Please represent me and the views of the majority of the US people. Think of what MLK would do and vote NO on more violence and killing to say that killing is wrong. Yes we need "appropriate action" but it is diplomatic nonviolent action, NOT more killing, that makes sense. More atrocity compounds atrocity. PERIOD. Whether Syrians are killed by chemical weapons or bombs, they are equally dead. Peace please. Thank you!!!
