“Elie Wiesel says that the greatest evil in the world is not anger or hatred, but indifference. If that is true, then the opposite is also true: that the greatest love we can show our children is the attention we pay them, the time we take for them. Maybe we serve children the best simply by noticing them.”
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Death Blossoms: Reflections from a Prisoner of Conscience

“Prison is a second-by-second assault on the soul, a day-to-day degradation of the self, an oppressive steel and brick umbrella that transforms seconds into hours and hours into days.”
Mumia Abu-Jamal

“here and there
in the barrios and the favelas,
among those who have least,
beat hearts of hope,
fly sparks of Overcoming. ”
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Death Blossoms: Reflections from a Prisoner of Conscience
