Reenvisioning Justice

Today was a historic moment for our nation.  Garry Brown, Tennessee District Attorney, announced that he has re-opened the investigation into the 1940 murder of whom some have identified as the “first martyr of the civil rights movement”, Elbert Williams.

Mr. Elbert Williams was a bright, outspoken 31-year-old family-oriented man in the predominantly black community of Haywood County, Tennessee. H

Lorraine Hansberry
“The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, is inevitably that which must also make you lonely.”
Lorraine Hansberry

Jim Morrison
“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
Jim Morrison

Dalai Lama XIV
“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
The Dalai Lama

Booker T. Washington
“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”
Booker T. Washington, Up From Slavery: An Autobiography

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
W. T. Purkiser
