yourself test and judge to be true.":

history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts
to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he

million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build
a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and

the troubles that afflict our world."
