Africa: Tutu Reflects - We Live in a Moral Universe; Zimbabwe Tests Our Resolve, Our Judgment
"You know, you could have spent a great deal of time speaking about the war in Iraq, and that would be justifiable. But we forget how before that war, we had millions of people around the world demonstrating against the possibility of a war, miles away from their doorstep. One particular day, when the world said we want to register our opposition to the war, you had this wonderful wave of humanity. Starting in the east as the sun rose, it was wave upon wave upon wave of remarkable people, passionate about peace. If we had the eyes to look, think of the people who spend so much of their time serving people who suffer from HIV and Aids; the many who are involved in relief in places like Darfur."

Evidence for God from Science
Booker T. Washington said:
"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
