"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." ~ Robert F. Kennedy, University of Cape Town, South Africa. N.U.S.A.S. "Day of Affirmation" Speech June 6th, 1966 transcript & audio
