    The great hope of social and economic justice in America was gunned down with the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. If the promise of social and economic justice is to be attained in America, the time to struggle and fight for social and economic justice is now, always now, not delaying for a more opportune time and a more couragious future genereation. The promise lives on, in all of us who are prepared to stand up against those who stole justice, deliberately without mercy or the slightest trace of scrupples in the first place. Justice is only as strong and as secure, as each generation prepared to honour and fight to uphold and preserve justice. We stand to be tested in the crucible of integrity now, always now.
    (Terence George Craddock June 2015 on the 11.6.2015.)
