We light a candle for our fellow UU's and protestors that sit in jail tonight in Arizona. We also light a candle for those that will be arrested with little press and fanfare - those whose rights are jeopardized and unrecognized. We light a candle that each voice raised in hope will make a difference, just enough of a difference to dowse the voice of hate...the voice of oppression...and the power of apathy.
As UU's we live our values in the world, because we can do no less. Rise up, speak out, and be the change in the world. We can do no less and there is a need for so much.
