Black History Month event promotes unity
February 28, 2014
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- Denver Beaulieu-Hains, public affairs specialist, Joint Multinational Training Command, delivers her keynote address during this year's Black History Month commemoration in Tower Barracks, Feb. 28.
Beaulieu-Hains discussed the duty we all have to work for each other and not against each other, to promote unity and diversity over struggle and division.
"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. brought 200,000 people to the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial without Facebook or Twitter," she said.
They came, continued Beaulieu-Hains, because of an innate sense that what King fought for was right.
It's a Soldier's duty to continue that fight for the inherent good, she said.
"It's not about war. It's about us being peaceful and helping somebody."
