There’s no greater tribute in remembrance of the civil rights warriors we have recently lost than to continue the struggle for our rights as American citizens. Each one buried their personal wants and fought that we all might share in the bounty that freedom promises.

QUOTE…John Lewis: "Do not get lost in a sea of despair…Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble."

QUOTE…C.T. Vivian: “Leadership is found in the action to defeat that which would defeat you...You are made by the struggles you choose."

Let us never forget the legacies left to us by these two men of integrity and strength of their characters. The time is now for us to carry on the work begun. Our leg of the race is equally as difficult, but together, we are strong enough and wise enough to continue the struggle for freedom, equality, and social justice.
