For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing, and abuse,
Rather than in silence shrink
From the truth they needs must think;
They are slaves who dare not be
In the right with two or three."
- James Russell Lowell
This is taken from Martin Luther King Jr.'s essay, "Transformed nonconformist," written for a world in which unrestrained violence, stockpiles of nuclear weapons, standing militaries, unthinkable economic disparities, racism and nationalism both casual and systemic, and greed are the unquestioned norm.
