Quotes:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  A riot is the language of the unheard.  The time is always right to do what is right.  In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.  I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear.
