In honor

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

“We have flown the air like birds and swum the seas like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.”

“Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Quotations :: Martin Luther King, Jr
