The struggle for peace, respect, hope, dignity, and love starts with those willing to think beyond the common place and not be limited by brutality, injustice, despair, oppression and hatred. The Thinker struggles with strategies and actions to elevate consciousness and community. The Thinker dreams of a “Beloved Community” where individuals will be “judged by the content of their character.” The Thinker declares “our right … to be respected as a human being.” The Thinker has the “Audacity to Hope.” The Thinker knows ”as we let our light shine … we give other people permission to do the same.” The Thinker is committed to “One Love .. One Heart”, so we can all “get together and feel all right.”
