Words of wisdom…

“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.” – Mahatma Gandhi

This quote reminds me of the 1931 song written my Florence Reece, “Which Side Are You On?”.  It was written in Harlan County, Kentucky, site of one of the most brutal union organizing drives by the United Mine Workers.  The small body that changes history can come from anywhere, left or right.  As we write our history, which side are you on?
