The promotion of evil in our city, although often allowed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, is very sad and can be discouraging to our citizens. The best way to respond to the KKK demonstration, as with other forms of wickedness, is to pray, to teach our children and grandchildren why this action is immoral, to assure those in our city most offended by this threatening presence that we stand with them, and to stay away from the demonstration. Memphis is a great city. We are growing in our love and respect for one another. We must never allow a few sick and disturbed people to throw us off our steady stride toward justice.
