Letter: Matter of Conscience

November 11, 2019

It was Martin Luther King, Jr. who counseled us about the voices that matter in our times of need. “In the end,” he said, “we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.” Sometimes, it is an incessant whisper that reminds us of our obligation to speak out.
