'Taking a stand' -- what an honor it is to have something to stand for and doing it!

Afflictions and adversity, well endured, strengthen character and resolve.
"Oh, a trouble's a ton, or a trouble's an ounce,
Or a trouble is what you make it.
And it isn't the fact you're hurt that counts,
But only how did you take it ? "
Edmund Vance Cooke,

I think it is a great quote, but he probably plagiarized it like he did his Doctoral thesis. Or perhaps it was passed on to him at the Communist training school he went to in Tennessee. It could have also been given to him by his Communist associates that JFK told him to stay away from.

I don't care who said it - it's a great quote! He definitely had a dream and he was assassinated for it! Like JFK was.... and many other good people that question the NWO....
