“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles;
Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances.
Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it.
Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?
Expediency ask the question, is it politic?
Vanity asks the question, is it popular?

But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”

    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can find it on YouTube under the same title as the novel.

  2. I’m sure Dr. King knew fear, but he also had courage in abundance. His firm resolve, that all men and women deserve equality, drove him to stand up against injustice and to do so without raising his hand against his fellow man. His, was a being of leadership. Loved your post, Charles.
