Quote to connect the past to the present:

From Pat Mitchell, civil rights activist from the 1960s:  Found your blog.  Your trek gives me the shivers.  I think of how fortunate I was, to participate in such an important movement, to see changes in our society, but never paid the price of jail or beatings.  It also is such pain to see the successful push back on voting rights, the growing acceptance of racism.  We need a whole new generation of young people with a passion to resist this inhumane movement.  My generation is too old to re-fight this alone.  Thank God for people like Eric Holder.
