R.I.P PATSY MINK 1927-2002

“America is not a country which needs to punish its dissenters to preserve its honor. America is not a country which needs to demand conformity of all its people, for its strength lies in all our diversities converging in one common belief, that of the importance of freedom as the essence of our country.”

-Patsy Takemoto Mink, 1967, arguing against legislation to punish flag-burners.
