…of which you are capable

20 Apr 2006|Davis Masten

“I wish you the decency and nobility of which you are capable.”

Jonathan Daniels said this years ago in his college graduation speech. Jonathan, sometime later, gave his life stepping in front of a shotgun blast directed at an African-American woman in Alabama. He had gone to Selma at the call of Dr. King.

Jonathan’s words and behavior are alive and well with me; as they are with my friend Cabell Brand, who pointed out the words to me. And now, I hope, with you.

Thank you Jonathan.
