In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
  ―  Martin Luther King Jr.
I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!  And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!
    —  Senator Barry Goldwater

Science investigates; religion interprets.  Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control.  Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values.  The two are not rivals.

This world demands the qualities of youth; not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.  It is a revolutionary world we live in, and thus, as I have said in Latin America and Asia, in Europe and in the United States, it is young people who must take the lead.  Thus you, and your young compatriots everywhere, have had thrust upon you a greater burden of responsibility than any generation that has ever lived.

Freedom of expression is like the air we breathe, we don’t feel it, until people take it away from us.
For this reason, Je suis Charlie, not because I endorse everything they published, but because I cherish the right to speak out freely without risk even when it offends others.   And no, you cannot just take someone’s life for whatever he/she expressed.
Hence this “Je suis Charlie” edition.

[Today is the day we (in America) celebrate the birthday of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.  The day is best celebrated by some act, some service to another, no matter how seemingly trivial, as long as it comes from a simple desire for joy, kindness, love or the spirit of just wanting to help another.  Please join me…  Act from your heart, today!  —  KMAB]
