"I hope you will join with me when I say:
I reject the tolerance of corruption in government.
I reject the notion that I sit idly by while our cities rot; our minority people are oppressed, our elderly demeaned by semi-starvation and pauperism.
I reject the inhuman and amoral values which dominate our priorities.
I reject the notion that we are powerless to change the course and I ask that you join with me in the effort we need to make in reshaping our world."
