Our flag is red, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbowred, yellow, brown, black and whiteand we're all precious in God's sight.
(Jesse Jackson (b. 1941), U.S. clergyman, civil rights leader. Speech, July 16, 1984, Democratic National Convention, San Francisco. Quoted in The Harper Book of American Quotations, ed. Gorton Carruth and Eugene Ehrlich (1988).
Jackson added, "My constituency is the desperate, the damned, the disinherited, the disrespected and the despised.")
It's no wonder why God made the heart a muscle. It takes a lot of strength to love sometimes. Like when your teenage son comes home with a rainbow Mohawk haircut and complains that you just don't get it. Valid argument.
'When the Creator places in your life an angel, that guides you through and on your path, giving you knowledge and understanding. Life is about inspiring to be a better being, and all you can be. That's what makes this journey shine its rainbow colours and touch other souls with a dab of paint.'
