Quotations on Political Courage and Political Cowardice


Given the circumstances of the horror of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, the hypocrisy of politicians in bed with the NRA and gun-makers, and their inaction about even considering reasonable gun legislation, I wanted to offer three quotations to consider:

“There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal.”

                                                        Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.



“The ballot is stronger than the bullet.”

                                                       President Abraham Lincoln




“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

                                                      Albert Einstein

  1. Thank you, Charles, for these amazing quotes. These very great men, speak truth to falsehoods among us today in places of power. But, when all is said and done, these truths are what really matter, as a very great man once said: “We are the change we hope for. and it is up to us to deliver that change.”
