    Statement from The Administration Team

     

    Dear MLK Community,

     

    When faced with the most challenging of times, we are forced to dig deep within ourselves and tap into our core values and beliefs. We ask ourselves meaningful questions. And, the answers that come from deep within teaches others who we are as people.  I'm sure many of you, like us, have been disturbed, outraged, and horrified by what is happening in our country regarding the murder of unarmed Black men and women by police officers.  Over and over we witness Black lives ended by law enforcement, the resulting protests, exchanges of violence and destruction, and the perpetuation of that cycle. As we seem to be in a stage of violence and destruction, we want to quote Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who stated, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” For too many years, the cries of Black people have gone “unheard” leading to our current national state. 

     

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. placed his life on the line countless times. As a man, he had deep convictions rooted in his personal beliefs and values.  One such belief was nonviolence. We quote, “We adopt the means of nonviolence because our end is a community at peace with itself. We will try to persuade with our words, but if our words fail, we will try to persuade with our acts.” As Black Americans, and their allies, fight to be heard, I’m reminded of how Dr. King used nonviolence to get the world to listen. 

     

    For the Black students, families, and their allies in the MLK community, please know that we are listening and we stand in solidarity with you. Please do not hesitate to reach out during these trying times.

     

     

    In solidarity,

     

    The Administration Team at MLK (Michael Essien and Tyson Fechter)


    尊敬的MLK社區,

    面對最具挑戰性的時代,我們被迫深入自己,挖掘我們的核心價值觀和信念。我們問自己一些有意義的問題。而且,內心深處的答案教會了我們作為人的身份。我敢肯定,像我們一樣,你們中的許多人都對我們國家發生的有關警察殺害手無寸鐵的黑人和婦女的事情感到不安,憤怒和恐懼。一次又一次,我們目睹黑人生命的死因在於執法,由此引發的抗議,暴力與破壞的交流以及這一循環的延續。我們似乎正處於暴力和破壞的階段,我們想引述小馬丁·路德·金博士的話,他說:騷亂是未曾聽說的語言。 多年來,黑人的呼聲未曾聽說,導致了我們目前的民族國家。

    小馬丁·路德·金博士(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)將他的生命無數次受到威脅。他作為一個男人,他的信念深深紮根於他的個人信念和價值觀。這樣的信念之一就是非暴力。我們引用:“我們採取非暴力手段,因為我們的目標是一個與自己和平相處的社區。我們將努力說服我們的話,但是如果我們說的話失敗,我們將嘗試用行爲說服我們。當黑人美國人及其同盟竭力傾聽別人的聲音時,我想起了金博士如何利用非暴力來讓世界傾聽。

    對於MLK社區中的黑人學生,家庭及其盟友,請知道我們正在傾聽,我們將與您保持一致。在這些艱難的時期,有需要的話,請不要猶豫聯係我們。

     

    團結一致,

    MLK的行政團隊(Michael Essien校長和Tyson Fechter副校長)


     

    Estimada comunidad de Escuela Intermedia Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, MLK:

    Cuando nos enfrentamos a los tiempos más difíciles, nos vemos obligados a profundizar en nosotros mismos y aprovechar nuestros valores y creencias fundamentales. Nos hacemos preguntas significativas. Y, las respuestas que vienen de lo más profundo les enseñan a los demás quiénes somos como personas. Estoy seguro de que muchos de ustedes, como nosotros, se han sentido perturbados, indignados y horrorizados por lo que está sucediendo en nuestro país con respecto al asesinato de hombres y mujeres Afroamericanos desarmados por parte de agentes de policía. Una y otra vez presenciamos vidas Afroamericanos terminadas por la aplicación de la ley, las protestas resultantes, los intercambios de violencia y destrucción, y la perpetuación de ese ciclo. Como parecemos estar en una etapa de violencia y destrucción, queremos citar a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., quien declaró: "Un motín es el lenguaje de los no escuchados". Durante demasiados años, los gritos de los Afroamericanos se han vuelto "desconocidos" que conducen a nuestro estado nacional actual.

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. arriesgó su vida incontables veces. Como hombre, tenía profundas convicciones arraigadas en sus creencias y valores personales. Una de esas creencias era la no violencia. Citamos: “Adoptamos los medios de no violencia porque nuestro fin es una comunidad en paz consigo misma. Intentaremos persuadir con nuestras palabras, pero si nuestras palabras fallan, intentaremos persuadir con nuestros actos ". A medida que los afroamericanos y sus aliados luchan por ser escuchados, recuerdo cómo el Dr. King usó la no violencia para hacer que el mundo escuchara.

    A los estudiantes Afroamericanos, las familias y sus aliados en la comunidad Escuela Intermedia Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, MLK, sepan que estamos escuchando y nos solidarizamos con ustedes. No dude en comunicarse durante estos tiempos difíciles.

     

    En solidaridad,

    Equipo de Administración de Escuela Intermedia Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, MLK           (Michael Essien y Tyson Fechter)
