"In the face of violent attack: Mrs. Naomi King calls for peaceful nonviolent resolution"
Atlanta, GA: In the aftermath of a harrowing escape from a carjacking attempt near her home in Atlanta yesterday, Mrs. Naomi King says she harbors "no ill will against the as alleged yet to be apprehended perpetrator."
A civil rights activist in her own right, widow of slain civil rights giant the late Rev. AD King, and co-founder of the A. D. King Foundation had this to say:
"My family, Dr. Babs Onabanjo President?Ceo of ADKF, and other close friends deeply appreciate your prayers and support. If my beloved AD, my "Boaz" were here, he would encourage us to seek justice rather than revenge. Not an eye for an eye or a fist for a fist.
"Yes, there must be justice for this tragic attack. Yet we must seek solutions and opportunities for our youth so that others don't choose this hopeless path that my attacker sought. This is the mission of the AD King foundation founded in my husband's honor.
"We must care for the young, the sick, the elderly and downtrodden. This is the loving message of Jesus.
"In thinking of yesterday, in a way at least what happened to me brings attention those who need a voice. Now we must act. We must change the system that produced such a young man in our beloved communities.
"Again thank you for your prayers. Let us now move forward to build a better community; a better world."
