Quotable Quotes on Power 4

Posted in America, Democracy, Equality, Jewish Americans, Leadership, Moral Courage

“Dissents speak to a future age. It’s not simply to say, ‘My colleagues are wrong and I would do it this way.’ But the greatest dissents do become court opinions and gradually over time their views become the dominant view.

As a person of deep religious convictions,”hell” is not a word that I take lightly nor is the word “evil.” We are living in evil times and the absence of true moral leadership from our President, the GOP and other persons have needlessly created a form of living hell for many Americans. Great leaders shepherd […]
