We shall overcome.
When we can truly celebrate the diversity of contributions and talents offered by all people, we shall overcome hatred and prejudice and oppression.
When we can truly extend our hands to one another in loving acceptance, we shall overcome the past that haunts us now.
Living in peace and freedom, we shall overcome the wrongs that have happened and the debts left unpaid.
Let us join together in that commitment to overcome.
Let us say together, "Amen."
