Martin Luther King III Delivers A Special Speech About Unity In Rockland

Published

on

My administration continues to be humbled by what can only be described as an
incredibly remarkable moment in Rockland’s history, when Martin Luther King III visited
our County, said County Executive, Ed Day.

American human rights activist, philanthropist and advocate, and oldest son of civil
rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, came to Rockland thanks
to our Commissioner Spencer Chiimbwe who facilitated the visit which included Martin
Luther King III delivering a special speech about unity to nearly 200 guests attending
our County Human and Civil Rights Hall of Fame Induction ceremony event.

I would like to recount some of the message Martin Luther King III shared at our event
which included in part, “My parents taught me that great leadership is about bringing
people together, not tearing them apart.” Martin Luther King III went on to say, “Great
leaders build bridges, bridges of hope and opportunity. They build bridges of
understanding, cooperation, and goodwill.”

New City, NY – The County of Rockland, along with towns and law enforcement, are on alert following an FBI warning made Thursday to the House of Representatives. During that panel, FBI Bureau Director Christopher Wray said he was increasingly concerned about “the potential for a coordinated attack here [United States] in the homeland, akin to the Isis-K attack we saw at the Russia Concert Hall just a couple weeks ago.”

“As I look back over my career in law enforcement, I would be hard-pressed to think of a time where so many threats to our public safety and national security were so elevated all at once. But that is the case as I sit here today,” said Wray.

Back in March, 144 people were killed and over 500 injured when four armed gunman stormed a Russian concert hall and open fired before setting fire to the building. The Islamic State group took responsibility for what is the deadliest attack in Russia in two decades.

The County of Rockland along with its municipal partners are on alert following the FBI Warning and urge residents who see something to say something.
