It’s not every day that you hear about someone who was jailed and charged with a crime deserving of the death penalty for helping to register African-Americans to vote in the South. Or someone who was beaten and jailed in Alabama for protesting the murder of a postal worker.
This was a man who lived Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Reading about his life was a pretty inspiring way to start my week. Makes you wonder what we can and should be doing to shake up our worlds to ensure that justice is achieved for all.
