The Artdog Quote(s) of the Week

We live in an era when persons of conscience and integrity (and I hope that includes you and me) must stand up for what we value, for public and private virtue, for compassion, and for the rule of law.

It takes strength, but more than that it takes faith

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the staircase. --Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We must have faith that even when the odds look long in favor of chaos and corruption, we can make a difference. We can build toward the light. We can call, and call, and call for justice, even in the face of injustice.

It’s an important thing, this standing up, this speaking out, this taking of a moral position. How we act toward others in a time of fear and suspicion is the true measure of our character.

Today, as we remember and honor the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., let us also remember and honor and live by the guidance he gave.
