You took a stand just by sitting wherever you wanted on a bus in Alabama back in December of 1955. That act of resistance started a civil rights movement that changed the world for so many people. You inspired so many to do the same things. You got into good trouble and because of you we are closer to becoming a better place to live.
Thank you Rosa Parks!
As far back as I can remember, I knew there was something wrong with our way of life when people could be mistreated because of the color of their skin.
Representative John Lewis of Georgia is a titan in the cause of civil rights, gay rights and human rights. Mr. passed away on July 17th, 2020 after a battle with cancer. His life was dedicated to making the world a better place for everyone. In every sense of the word he was a patriot. Thank you good sir for all the good trouble you caused in changing the world for many. You did things for others at your own peril and safety. Your legacy will be one celebrated in history and memory. Rest in power Mr. Lewis.
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
