for the days, weeks, months, years, decades ahead. I guess Corretta knew that... I guess she and her husband both took to heart Ghandi's call for "RELENTLESS nonviolent resistance". Relentless is certainly not a word I apply to myself that much! Isn't that Chrysler's slogan, the relentless pursuit of perfection? It makes me think of a giant corporation, or some monstrous machine, much sooner than Ghandi or even the Kings. But we have to be like that, in some way, and not turn into unfeeling machines ourselves. The only way I've been able to do it is through the community of my local group... and hopefully the community of hte bulletin boards. that's the only answer i have. when i get dispirited, i rely on others to get me back up, and i hope they rely on me the same way.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then .... I contradict myself;
I am large .... I contain multitudes.
- Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself", Leaves of Grass
