Quote Wednesday — FDR and MLK

18 Jul

The nation that destroys its soul destroys itself. — Franklin Delano Roosevelt

We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.  Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. — Martin Luther King Jr.

Been thinking a lot lately about civil rights.   They’ve been in the news a lot.  Bottom line: everyone has a right to live as long as it doesn’t hurt others.  And the big issues right now don’t actually hurt anyone.  We need to look at domestic policy as a protection of civil rights, not as a way of ensuring our personal agendas or ways of life.
