Meditations on Love №7: The air we breath

“It is impossible to struggle for civil rights, equal rights for blacks, without including whites. Because equal rights, fair play, justice, are all like the air: we all have it, or none of us has it. That is the truth of it.” — Maya Angelou

Discovered this yesterday well searching for quotes that reflected the poetry play Dane Swan and I are working on. It fit so perfectly with what we are trying to convey with our piece called, Like Air.

That we all must be on the path towards civil rights, towards women’s rights, towards human rights or we are on no path at all. This path does not happen solely outside in the world. It happens within the human heart. As Maya Angelou it must be like the air we breath.
