The ultimate measure of a man* is not where he* stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he* stands at times of challenge and controversy. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We are presently standing at a time of challenge and controversy. Our Pledge of Allegiance promises “liberty and justice for all.” Each and every one of us should stand up in support of that promise. Let our voices be heard and let our elected leaders know that we care deeply about that promise.
* In modern usage, the word “man” would be replaced by “person,” and “he” would be replaced by “s/he.”
