All that you had for justice

Copyright (c) 123RF Stock Photos

We are in for a very long haul. I am asking for everything you have to give.
We will never give up.
Your will lose your youth, your sleep, your patience, your sense of humor and sometimes the understanding and support of people you love.
In return, I have nothing to offer you but your pride in being part of the struggle,
And all the dreams you have ever had,
For your children,
And your grandchildren,
And the future;
And the certain knowledge, that at the end of your days,
You will be able to look back and say for all of your life,
You gave all that you had,
For justice.

-From a speech by Jill Ruckleshaus
