Dear Cindy,

Those who speak truth in troubling times seldom have easy lives.

They sometimes mis-speak or mis-step and have those moments held before the world for ridicule. In fact their actions sometimes cost them everything that most people hold dear -- friends, family, finances and health.

But in the end, those who spoke truth in troubling times, who often felt attacked and abandoned, who walked with strangers when friends disappeared, who gave all they had for what they believed. These men and women later become our heros. The role models held up to future generations.

This is the irony of our society.


"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends. "

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. "
Martin Luther King Jr
