This picture has been floating around social media sites again recently.  Such a simple yet powerful image.  A rainbow of colors.  A  beautiful and important message.

Love the skin you are in.

Quote: President Clinton on Medgar Evers

Mr. Clinton said that Washington could learn from Mr. Evers.

“The next time you hear people complaining around Washington about what a rough business democracy is, we might do well to remember what it was like 50 years ago, and the sacrifices that were made.”

“Fighting for a world we can share instead of having to agree to let somebody else control it has always been a highly dangerous proposition. It is expensive in blood and life.”
