Martin Luther King wrote, "Actually, time itself is neutral; it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right." As we look around us today we can see our nation turning against the principles it was found upon. They my cry foul with the torture of evil people while the leadership of our country pull the rug out from under its very fiber. We can sit silently while it happens or speak up and and try to save her!
