|Poor People’s Campaign of 1968-the Mule Train from Marks, Mississippi. |
I hope that anyone reading these words will challenge our mayor and all of our council representatives to move forward into the "invincible future" (borrowing the words of Oswald Chambers) by truly putting Plainfield (as opposed to self-interest and political expediency) first.
On some positions cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And 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.
