    A bit more Jordan, what a woman:

    The majority of the American people still believe that every single individual in this country is entitled to just as much respect, just as much dignity, as every other individual.

    How do we create a harmonious society out of so many kinds of people? The key is tolerance -- the one value that is indispensable in creating community.

    • Do not call for black power or green power. Call for brain power.

    I was lucky enough to get to hear her speak when I was a teenager, and loved her ever since.

    We need more leaders like her today.

    I agree, brains, heart, and soul, for america.

    A spirit of harmony can only survive if each of us remembers, when bitterness and self-interest seem to prevail, that we share a common destiny.
