“A Radical Revolution of Values”
“A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life’s roadside, but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho Road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life’s highway.
“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring”.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., from “Beyond Vietnam” Riverside Church April 4, 1967.
I’d like to recognize all of our clients for their service, remembering that “everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
On this holiday, I’m also sending a very special note of gratitude to our clients, past and present, who work tirelessly to end or reduce poverty, homelessness, war, injustice.
