...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Saturday Matinee

About This Video:

Inspired by his recently deceased relative, a young German student Eugen Merher made this touching tribute. It’s a story about an aging runner, constrained to living inside a retirement home, longing to put on his running shoes and break free from it all for one last run.
Eugen sent his video to Adidas hoping they would at least acknowledge his work, but they remained silent. Disappointed, he uploaded it to Internet and within days it touched millions of people in a way no ad ever will. It gives hope, it makes you cry and I hope Adidas is regretting ignoring him.
