Three quotations from Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (b. 1929-01-15, d. 1968-04-04) that speak to me especially loudly today:
"Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane."
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable ... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
