“Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of another is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
~Martin Luther King Jr.

So proud of my country.  We have our flaws and scars and faiures and ugly moments...still we press forward.  I still believe...the dream is still alive.  One day...one glorious day, there will be joy and laughter and peace ever-after.
