I’ve always believed this

Standard

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. put it into the perfect words. There are innumerable quotes by Dr. King being posted today. This is one that resonates with me because I believe that the writer, the artist, the scholar, the creative cannot keep a neutral silence because that is best for them personally, their work, their career.

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

That time was Dr. King’s time and that time is now. We must not let ourselves be dragged backwards, we must not let his work and the work of so many others be in vain.
