  1. I always liked the final debate scene from the movie, “The Great Debaters” movie – that discusses Justice, Civil Disobedience, individual responsibility, ‘moral’, rule of law, etc. This is the link to the 9:58 minutes long clip – that to me, illustrates both a time in history, a focus, on those not served/protected by the law, but the points made? Timeless – no matter ‘which group’ has no standing in the eyes of the ‘law’ at a moment in time.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3wxBJ9v7qM
