“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It’s a sad injustice that John Edward James had to wait so long for his commission as second Lieutenant. But the good news is that his family’s persistent advocacy finally made a difference.
Do your best anyway and never give up!
(Note on the quote: Dr. Martin Luther King was paraphrasing from the 1853 sermon “Of Justice and Conscience,” by Theodore Parker, a Unitarian minister and transcendentalist who called for the abolition of slavery.)
