Hands up and out
“And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping that the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition 'ere long. With courage, born of success achieved in the past, with a keen sense of the responsibility which we shall continue to assume, we look forward to a future large with promise and hope. Seeking no favors because of our color, nor patronage because of our needs, we knock at the bar of justice, asking an equal chance." - Mary Church Terrell
“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” - Kahlil Gibran
“When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?” - Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt said it perfectly. I mourn the loss of cooperation and its handmaid, civility.
I just love your post! Timely! Thank you!
