A Worthy Quotation

“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, generic nor politic, ailment nor popular—but one must take it because it is right.”

~ Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, unhealthy Jr.

Thanks to Dancewater and the other bloggers at “Iraq Today” for this and the previous post, and for their dedication to cataloging the daily catastrophes and sufferings in Iraq resulting from this evil and unnecessary military occupation.
