Do Not Cower

By Jon Dunnemann

Today, who will fight the battle for the oppressed among us?

Do you have the character, bravery, and willingness of heart that it requires?

Justice continuously demands that everyone be made to play by the same rules. For fairness does not belong to only some alone but rather to all of us as one body, one nation, one humanity.

This is the very important lesson to be learned from those among us who have previously stood on the front-line and taken sacrificial blows in the struggle for dignity, equality, and justice.

Do not cower in the face of the enemy!!
