Before The Day is Done
The time is always right to do what is right.
Martin Luther King.
The things that interested my mother most in her life were peace, people treating one another right, her friends and family, art, cooking, and reading. So naturally when the Civil Rights Movement came, she got right on board. She took me with her as soon as I could walk and talk. Those days were full. She was an activist all her life.
I'm not one to bemoan past mistakes. Everybody makes them. I'm just glad right now that there is possibility that I could cast a vote for an African American for President of the United States in the next election, speaking of "one man, one vote". Sometimes it seems that all our struggles are futile, but I know better.
