Bob Edgar, President of Common Cause shares his response to the tragedy in AZ…
Dear Colleagues and Friends:
Here are some words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to reflect upon on this “day after” the violence in Arizona:
“When evil men (and women) plot,
good men (and women) plan.
When evil men (and women) burn and bomb,
good men (and women) must build and bind.
When evil men (and women) shout ugly words of hatred,
good men (and women) commit themselves to the glories of love.
Where evil men (and women) would seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo,
good men (and women) MUST seek to bring into being a real order of Justice.”
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING
Let’s all hope that the coming days will renew our collective efforts to PLAN, BUILD and recommit ourselves to seeking “a REAL ORDER OF JUSTICE.”
