“Of course laws will not eliminate prejudice from the hearts of human beings. But that is no reason to allow prejudice to continue to be enshrined in our laws – to perpetuate injustice through inaction.”

Just because it’s written doesn’t make it happen. People make it happen.

Barbara Jordan

“We are a people in a quandary about the present. We are a people in search of our future. We are a people in search of a national community. We are a people trying not only to solve the problems of the present, unemployment, inflation, but we are attempting on a larger scale to fulfill the promise of America. We are attempting to fulfill our national purpose, to create and sustain a society in which all of us are equal.”

Each of us is created with a purpose so that we may live a purposeful life.

Howard Thurman

“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.”

The genuine within each of us is a specially designed gift of the creator, intended to be shared, a salt that flavors the earth, a beam of light that shines to help others to see that God is good all the time. Don’t hide it. Don’t give it away. Stay true to the God in you and walk your path and not the steps of another.
