Let's do this

"State Rep. John Deberry, a fellow minister and chairman of the Tennessee Black Caucus, said the loss of Hooks is a sobering reminder that 'we are losing an incredible generation of men and women who changed the world.'

'And I hope that all these young folks who accept their rights with such a cavalier attitude, those who are disrespectful to their seniors, those who go to these schools and misuse the opportunities ... realize that as these men and women move off the scene, that somebody has to step up,' Deberry said. 'Somebody has to continue the battle.'"

From Tennessean.com, Benjamin Hooks, Civil Rights Leader, dies at age 85

If no one steps up to fight the battle, the war cannot be won.

Join in the war against injustice! Live life for greatness.
