With those scared words passed down from generations past I call a free people to action everyday. By those words I call all to DC Labor Day 2016. No mater plan, no permits, no podiums with speakers, no marching bands to announce our coming, just a free people walking together carrying their signs for justice, letting our silence thunder, joining and embracing our free brothers and sisters on the Great Mall.
Dr. Naison Black History and Labor historian reminds us that silence can speak louder than thunder. He point us to the historic 1917 when silence spoke louder than thunder.
“They marched down Fifth Avenue on that summer Saturday without saying a word. They chanted no chants, sang no protest songs. The only sounds were the disconcertingly mournful thuds of muffled drums — and, of course, the marchers’ footsteps on the hot pavement.”
If I sand alone than I stand one man alone.
But if by chance I stand with one other than surely justice has a chance.
If you want to know what song this walking man is singing it's Josh Stone's version of "Eye On The Prize" from Soundtrack for a revolution
