Working people

There's so much today that suggests "Take it easy ... give yourself a break ... do only what you have to." In contrast, it was stirring to visit a photographic exhibit entitled "I Dream A World," focusing on the accomplishments of seventy-five African-American women. None of these people's lives were easy.

Typical, for example, is Barbara Jordan, former member of the United States House of Representatives and currently a college teacher. Long-standing willingness to work to see rightful change shines in her life and her comments. "We have somehow got to sacrifice our lives as an example," she says, "to move young people along so that they will understand that it is a long, slow, tough road to really make it so that it lasts."
