those who look on

The world is a dangerous place. 
Not because of those who do evil, 
but because of those who look on and do nothing." 
- Albert Einstein

In Birmingham in the 60s the actions of the demonstrators were called "wasteful and worthless". Black citizens were told to use the courts and that negotiations should be among leaders and not in the streets. But Dr. King promised to protest every day until "peaceful equality had been assured".

True power lies with a just cause. Power to the Peaceful.
