Martin Luther King Jr. noted: “On some positions, cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expedience asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ ”
We have to make a choice. Serve humanity or serve history. By serving history we surrender all our power and moral authority to the government and its attendant anxieties, the corporate creeds.
You do what you must, not because it is true but because it is right. We have little choice in how we die, but we have a choice in how we live. It’s not what you do with life that matters, but what you do with what life throws your way is what counts.
Share your interest in humanity long after you die.
