"If it is to be, it's up to me." proclaimed Newark Mayor, Cory Booker, during a captiving talk at the Martin Luther King Jr breakfast in Minneapolis.  He concluded we can't expect the world to change if we aren't willing to change.

Mayor Booker's parents challenged him to stand up and be an example for others.  He noted the silence and inaction of good people is our nation's greatest concern. Democracy is not a spectator sport, it requires small acts of love!
