Thought for the day, Thursday 1st December

“We must have courage — determination — to go on with the task of becoming free — not only for ourselves, but for the nation and the world — cooperate with each other. Have faith in God and ourselves… I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free … so other people would be also free… I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people… To this day I believe we are here on earth to live, grow, and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.”
