MLK Day Parade 01/21/13 Statesboro, GA

On January 21, 2013, the Bahá'ís of Statesboro and friends marched in Statesboro's Martin Luther King Day (MLK) Parade. Please click below for photos and more information about the event.

Fourteen people of diverse backgrounds marched together wearing “no room in my heart for prejudice” T-shirts and singing: “We are the flowers of one garden, we are the leaves of one tree, all the world is one country, man is one—can’t you see.” We carried the Bahá’í Faith banner of “unity in diversity” to show our commitment to bringing people of all colors together in peace and harmony. “So powerful is the light of unity” according to Bahá’u’lláh “that it can illuminate the whole earth.” Special thanks are extended to Shuai Yuan for taking wonderful pictures, Joe Goldstein for leadings the singing, and Nancy Hutcheon for coming from Atlanta to support us.
