" ... not only we, that prate

Of rights and wrongs, ...

... but she

Did more, and underwent, and overcame,

The woman of a thousand summers back,

Godiva, ...

***
So the Powers, who wait

On noble deeds, cancell'd a sense misused; ... "

Flauting Peacefulness -- Uncovering To Cover

http://thomasfortenberry.net/?p=2555

Imagine:

It wouldn't take many in the lead to conspicuously cloak the marchers in the chastity of cause while they portray that the marchers come from across the spectrum, open and unafraid, in peace, to not just defend the means of preserving, but publicly celebrate the blessings of liberty in all her glory. It's time to open and purify the message. What could be more brave, yet innocent?

"Non-cooperation is an attempt to awaken the masses, to a sense of their dignity and power. This can only be done by enabling them to realize that they need not fear brute force, if they would but know the soul within."

Understanding such Soul-Force is indispensable to poignant protest.

“We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with Soul Force.”

-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
