These are just some of the many great quotes from the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington that truly stood out to me:
"Where do we go from here? To chaos or to community? ... We say 'No' to chaos and 'Yes' to community." (Reverend Bernice King)
"Dr. Martin Luther King gave a powerful voice to the quiet hopes of many." (President Barack Obama)
"Because they marched, city councils, and legislatures changed. Because they marched... eventually the White House changed." (President Barack Obama)
"They were seeking not just the absence of injustice, but the presence of economic opportunity." ... "'What does it profit a man,' as Dr. King would say, 'if he can sit at an integrated lunch counter, but cannot afford the meal?'" (President Barack Obama)
"The promise of this nation will only be kept when we work together." (President Barack Obama)
"The fierce urgency of NOW remains." (President Barack Obama)
I just want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can for Jesus Christ.
