Quotations

On the Iraq War: "[With] a lifelong commitment to issues of peace and social justice. I feel we're on the brink of global war." (post-dispatch.com, Oct. 2, 2002)

Was it Cesar Chavez? Maybe it was Dorothy Day?
Some will say Dr. King or Gandhi set them on their way
No matter who your mentors are it's pretty plain to see
That, if you've been to jail for justice, you're in good company
