He was there to support his daughter. Anyone watching could see his pride and how he listened to her fully, believing in her, her words, and her beliefs. That was Robert Williams. A caring father who knew his family and loved them wholeheartedly. Felizmente Sr. Williams saw ALL of us on this tierra as his familia, and instilled that to his children.
Babushka had the Blessing to have met Mr. Williams at a networking event sponsored by his daughter Dianne Williams-Cox and Conexion. Semi political, friend making, business opportunity, this was a small gathering to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Though small, the group of individuals, varied in their backgrounds and agendas, all were striving to make Tallahassee a city that would do MLK proud. We were all feliz to see others of like mind, y aunque pocos we were passionate y poderoso. And in this frame of mind Mr Williams approached BB directly.
"Please make sure to write the truth about Dr. Luther King Jr's legacy. It didn't start out as a peacemaking message. He knew the power of The Vote and wanted his people to use it. The peaceful demonstrations all came from this first vision. We can't let that truth and vision get lost. There is power in voting, THAT is how our voices will be heard, how we'll make a difference."
BB later saw Mr. Williams and Dianne in many community events and he always greeted me warmly. Truth be known, Babushka was always feliz to see him, but embarrassed that she still hadn't shared his mensaje. It can wait no longer. Robert Williams is watching these elections from a higher plane, hoping his fellow Americans succeed in taking the higher road. The Presidential Election Day is here.
"If you are a true American and you are black or brown a vote for Trump or third party is a curse to his life and work . Moreover , you are interfering with the work of God ..:" Robert Williams
