Love and Justice in a Time of Uncertainty

My mom held this banner on the corner of 13th & University Avenue in Gainesville, FL, at an Iraq war protest. The banner is a quote from Martin Luther King: Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

That's what I'll be doing from now until forever -- not staying silent about things that matter. I'll always think of my mom holding this banner.
