In the “Speech from the Dock” Nelson Mandela stated, “I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
In light of recent tragic events in Virginia, take a moment to remember that you (we) fight and die for freedom, compassion, understanding, the right to be heard. How can you expect peace if you don’t offer the same in return?
