Our Common Good

Just finished watching HBO’s “Thurgood,” the one-man play starring Laurence Fishburne and filmed live at the Kennedy Center.  It is Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall recalling his life and I found it enlightening and entertaining. I lived through most of the time covered so both cringed and rejoiced at some of the memories.

When we see all the injustice we fight against today, it is good to go back in time a bit and see that we do make social progress when good people stay in the game and continue to drag, push, and pull society forward towards greater justice.
