Bristol- Yesterday people gathered at Bristol Eastern High School to attend the NAACP Annual Meeting and pay tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.
Kimberly Jones, the director of career services for Tunxis Community College, was the keynote speaker and urged the crowd to use Dr. King’s teachings as motivation to improve our nation.
State Representative Whit Betts (R- Bristol) was also present at the breakfast. He noted that Connecticut is in difficult times and we “must stick together and work across party lines.”
“In the wake of the Arizone shootings, it is clear that Dr. King’s message of non-violence is as relevant today as it has ever been. Today is all about Dr. King but, truly, we must remember his teachings every day,” Betts added.
