May We Not Lose Heart

Let us look today

to those who have shown us how

to move forward when

faced with discrimination,

injustice, and hate.

Let the words of Mandela,

Gandhi, and King call

us to combat violence with

a stronger response,

one infused with thoughtful care

and focused intent,

one that will truly lead to

liberty and justice for all.

May we not lose heart.
