-Author unknown [WP 9/24/19]

“When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who you differ from threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens, but as enemies – to be met not with cooperation but with conquest, to be subjugated and mastered.”
– Robert Kennedy, at City Club of Cleveland during his 1968 presidential campaign, the day after the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated.
