I would normally post a blog on my website and send out my weekly email to our online recruiter community today. But, my heart aches and it’s hard to focus as I try to comprehend the death of George Floyd while in police custody. Anger has turned into rioting in our cities. And, there’s a multitude of voices and opinions in the media.
I found a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It’s from an address that he gave in 1967. It still rings true:
What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.
Injustice and inequality aren’t new problems. And, it’s encouraging to see companies take a stand and put their money where their mouth is.
It’s my personal commitment to be a part of the change that I hope to see.
