Students To Stage MLK Rally In Times Square

 NEW YORK -- In his new German language book Der Himmelsgarten (Heaven's Garden), Marc Daniels, eldest grandson of Ross Daniels, the inventor of the Ross Root Feeder, challenges President Barack Obama to root feed our ecological, educational, and spiritual roots by inviting children from around the world to the White House for a televised Weed Out Hate event. Daniels proposes that the President call on youngsters everywhere to realize with their hands what Dr. King conceived in his heart and soul. While it's been over 47 years since Martin Luther King delivered his "I have a Dream" speech, and though much of his promised-land vision has come to fruition, unfortunately, according to Daniels, there still remain "weed seeds" of hate that hinder our success individually and collectively.

Daniels has put this theory into action with his "Weed Out Hate—Sow the Seeds of Peace" Sunflower Flower Seed packs. By integrating principles of social inclusion with gardening, this initiative offers educators a powerful method that transcends simply preaching for tolerance. It provides a hand-on experience to symbolize what Dr. King fought so hard to achieve.

His call to action has struck a responsive chord with students from Manhattan's prestigious Rudolf Steiner School. According to Daniels, these students are uniquely qualified to represent the interests of kindergardeners everywhere, the social architects of tomorrow. The students will be entrusted to plan and execute a march on Times Square commemorating Martin Luther King's achievements. According to Daniels, "this is the ultimate apprentice challenge and will become the resume builder of a lifetime."

From 9-11AM, on January 17th, the students will distribute the peace seeds to passersby in an effort to raise race related social consciousness. The venue will be opposite the Times Square Reuters building under its billboard. There will also be concurrent events in San Francisco, CA; Dallas/Ft Worth, TX; Baltimore, MD; Toronto, CA; Springfield, IL; and Heilbronn, Germany.

When asked what happens after the world's children are called upon to weed out hate in their hearts and fields, Daniels quipped, "This is a closely held secret. For that you need to read the final chapter of the book!"
