We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths -- that all of us are created equal -- is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.
President Barack Obama
I am going to stand up, I am going to speak out and I am going to rock the boat in a responsible manner until Washington starts listening to the people again.
U.S. Senator John A. Durkin (D-NH)
The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
President John F. Kennedy
Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.
