Fighting Discrimination


HEN: The year was 1963 , and yet some people remember it as though it was yesterday. The day our teachers ran into the classroom repeating five words, "the President has been shot." Several of the students hid under their desks and many, both boys and girls, cried. Our heroic leader was gone, and we had had no warning. That night mothers and daughters cried as the vision of the woman that inspired them was covered in the blood of her slain husband. John F. Kennedy was dead, and it seemed as though time stopped and the hopes and dreams we had for our great Nation had been shattered. And so it came in threes. Next Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed. And just months later in 1968, Bobby Kennedy was slain. It was if all those fighting for freedom were being eliminated. The next several years the whole Country was on the edge of its collective seat, worrying about what else would come. Times were changing and there was a communication gap between the generations. Many young and poor men from our area died in Vietnam. Times were sad and strange but the music of that era lives on. The people we looked up to then and the celebrities that grace our televisions today are completely different and we wonder sometimes how much has the Country progressed.


AND NOW: Every four years we cast our vote for the President that we believe would be the best leader for our Country. Every few years there is a controversial subject of the popular vote versus the electoral vote and then it seems every four years people forget that issue and go on about their lives. This year is a little different. Law is such a huge part of our every day life and the law is always in a state of flux, always changing and, hopefully, for the better. Young people today are no different than the young people of 40 years ago in that they are gathering, hopefully peacefully, to protest what they consider to be inequalities based on sex, race, or sexual preference. We at Davis & Davis applaud their right to make their voices heard so long as they do so in a peaceful and law abiding manner. One of the issues that should concern all of us are crimes based in hate. Hate crimes can not be tolerated in America. We at Davis & Davis are proud to say that we welcome all clients who have legitimate legal complaints and we are also honored to say that we represented people in our community from every walk of life and every racial and economic background. We do not treat all of our clients equally because it is the law we do so because that is how we were taught and because it is right. Discrimination should not and can not be tolerated and we promise to do our part in the never ending fight to end it
