Bermudian salute to MLK at Atlanta service
A Bermudian speaker delivered the opening prayer as America marked Martin Luther King Day.
Cindy Trimm gave the opening prayer at the annual ceremony to honour the famous civil rights leader in the church where he once preached.
Dr King, who was murdered by a career criminal and racist in 1968, worked at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, where he was copastor with his father for much of the 1960s.
Dr Trimm, an author and motivational speaker, told the congregation on Monday: “We are all created in the image and likeness of God, irrespective of race, ethnicity, cultural differences, national origin, political persuasion or socio-economic station.
“Today, we stand to celebrate a man that reinforced and reaffirmed that we all have the same inalienable rights, among which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Dr Trimm is a former United Bermuda Party senator. She is now based in Atlanta.
