King’s Daughter: ‘Let Freedom Ring’ in Egypt, Syria . . . and Florida

by Andrew Johnson

Reverend Bernice King, the daughter of the civil rights leader, included Florida in a list of places where we must “let freedom ring,” along with war-torn Syria and unstable nations like Libya and Egypt. 

The shooting death of Trayvon Martin took place in Florida, and that state’s “Stand Your Ground” law has became a source of national controversy. A six-person jury acquitted his shooter, George Zimmerman, in July.
