“Cowardice asks…

“Cowardice asks the question: Is it safe?
Expediency asks the question: Is it politic?
Vanity asks the question: Is it popular?
But conscience asks the question: Is it right?
And there comes a time one must take a position that is neither safe, not politic, nor popular–but one must take it simply because it is right.”
—Martin Luther King

    Heather, what a great quote and very timely when it comes to taking a position whether it’s safe, political, right or popular. Martin Luther King got it right when he said you take a position because it’s right.
