β€œIt is my belief that the wheel of history is in your hands. And it is what we do, or fail to do during our time that will determine what our lives are like, our communities, our world is like. And, so, today allow your ears to be revolutionized by what you see and hear. But, tomorrow, head out to confront injustice wherever it rears its ugly head.” – Tom Morello
