“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.”
On August 28,1963, The Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered these words on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. These words spoke to the power of truth of that era, but they are no less powerful in our discordant country today. The progress that has been made to date cannot be allowed to be unraveled by those who wish to turn the clock back. We must keep marching forward, forever forward, in the pursuit of Justice, equality, and healthcare for all. There can be no retreat, no turning back, no matter the circumstances.
