Favorite Quotes: Free From Future Oppression

"Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another and suffer the indignity of being the skunk of the world. Let freedom reign!"

-Nelson Mandela

While Nelson Mandela was saying this about his native South Africa, I do hope that all lands in the world would be able to say this one day. Even in a 21st century America, oppression still exists and ruins lives. I will always fight for the freedoms of the oppressed.

I'm not sure that desire is entirely missing from the USA these days.
