October 22, 2019



    Television journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault, one of the first black students at the University of Georgia, recalls the early days of the Civil Rights struggle.  Ruby Doris Smith, a member of the Atlanta Student Movement, was often the glue that held everyone together.  Once during sit-ins in Atlanta, a hostile crowd began tormenting the students.  Some of the students wanted to retaliate.  But Rudy Doris kept walking the line, whispering, “Don’t forget why you’re here.”


    Hunter-Gault says that she has carried that message with her over the years.  “Whenever I am closest to being the best reporter I can be, it’s because I hear Ruby Doris whispering to me, “Don’t forget why you’re here.”


    That’s a great daily thought for a Christian.  Why are you here?  To serve the living Christ who purchased your salvation on a cross.
