"If a man happens to be 36-years old as I happen to be and some great truth stands before the door of his life, some great opportunity to stand for that which is right. And the man might be afraid his home will be bombed, or he’s afraid that he will lose his job, or he’s afraid that he will get shot or beat down by state troopers…He may go on to live until he’s 80. But he’s just as dead at 36 as he would be at 80, and the sensation of breathing in his life is merely the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit…He Died!!! A man dies when he refuses to stand up for which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for which is true.
So we’re going to stand up amid horses. We’re going to stand up right here in Alabama amidst Billy clubs. We’re going to stand up right here in Alabama amidst police dogs if they have them. We’re going to stand up amidst tear gas! We’re going to stand up amidst anything they can muster up, letting the world know that we are determined to be free!”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
