And So Far Still To Go…

It’s been 50 years since the historic March On Selma and, as beautiful and inspiring as the speech President Obama gave to celebrate it was…

I can’t help but be reminded of just how often the religious sentiments underlying it were also used to justify the same racial inequities that march was aimed at ending – and how often they are still used to deny the rights of women and those in the LGBT community. And that reminds of some other great words…

And there are people still in darkness,
And they just can’t see the light.
If you don’t say it’s wrong then that says it right.
We got try to feel for each other, let our brother’s know that we care.
Got to get the message, send it out loud and clear.

I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you…

Ten Years After

Great leaders do more than make nice speeches. Great leaders shift paradigms too…
