Not a lot of original thought lately...

Another great quote.

"The poor had no answers for the unfairness of life. Had a mere accident of birth condemned them to a cycle of suffering and poverty? They had little time or leisure to contemplate such questions. But when asked about the source of strength in there lives, they often pointed to Jesus. Religion for them was no crutch but rather a source of inspiration. They found in Jesus, and in the image of the cross, a ray of hope that convinced them God knew their suffering. As Fannie Lou Hammer used to sing in the cotton fields of Mississippi, and later in Jail, 'Oh Lord, You know just how I feel.'"
