A Righteous People
It is fine and right for us to be
good, moral, righteous individuals—
the kind who don’t commit murder—
but there are times when
our private, individual morality
is not enough to meet the demands
of the evils in this world.
We must also be
a good people,
a moral people,
a righteous people
with the collective courage and will
to demand the greater good
for those who live both within and beyond
the walls of our own churches and homes.
