MLK Day in the Mountains

There's a quote I heard on an NPR broadcast durning the recent presidential election. It was so powerful a sentiment, I have carried it with me. After doing a little research to determine its origin, I've discovered that it has evolved in variations since the 1990s. It seems especially poignant right now.

Rosa sat so Martin could march. Martin marched so Barack could run. Barack ran so our children can fly.
