Bending the Arc (in the Direction of Justice)

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." (Dr. Martin Luther King, 1968)* "Dr. King once said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice. It bends towards justice, but here is the thing: it does not bend on its own. It bends because each of us in our own ways put our hand on that arc and we bend it in the direction of justice...." (Senator Barak Obama, 2008) * (Or Theodore Parker, in 1853, if you want to go back even farther in history.)
