do we?

"so long as we have enough people in this country willing to fight for their rights, we'll be called a democracy."

'at the heart of freedom lie our basic civil rights. and we hold these rights to be sacred. it takes more than a display of pride to protect those rights. it takes action.' (at bottom of picture)

The Future Was Yesterday said...

I can only answer this in this manner:

Jimmy Valvano, a famous college basketball coach, was battling cancer. A few months before he died, he said this:

"Don't Give up. Don't Ever Give up!"

Perhaps the question should be "Do we have enough people willing to fight hard enough?"

Cheers!
