Reform

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

~ Frederick Douglass

~ Shaun King

~ Clara Barton

“It’s time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington.

That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent.”
~ Barack Obama

“If man is only a little lower than the angels, the angels should reform.”
~ Mary Wilson Little

“Each generation doubtless feels called upon to reform the world. Mine knows that it will not reform it, but its task is perhaps even greater. It consists in preventing the world from destroying itself.”
