Remembering Senator Bill Larkin

February 5, 1928 - September 1st, 2019

"In March of 1965, a young Army major named Bill Larkin found himself in Alabama. His assignment — along with thousands of other soldiers, National Guard members and FBI agents — was to escort a march in support of voting rights from Selma to Montgomery. And just before the marchers stepped off on their 50-plus mile route, Larkin met the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

I’ve had the opportunity to meet Former State Senator a few times in my life. Mainly at the Newburgh Armory. From what I knew and saw, he dedicated himself to his district and was a great example, in Albany, and at home. My love and condolences to the Larkin family. May you Rest In Peace Senator Larkin. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi, we belong to Allah (God) and to Allah, we shall return.

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Reverend Dr. MLK Jr.
