Know That No One is Silent --

Work To Change This
by The Syracuse Cultural Workers
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
~Margaret Mead (1901 - 1978)
American cultural anthropologist
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that. . . .
Let no one pull you low enough to hate. . . . ."
~Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968)
American Civil Rights Leader
Winner of Nobel Peace Prize, 1964
