Two icons of civil rights in America have died: Dorothy Irene Height and Benjamin Hooks.

Their lives inspired many of us who believe in freedom and equality. Their efforts and fights¬†have paid off. We all agree that equality, justice, and freedom are not easy to achieve. America still has a long way to go. Thank you to these freedom fighters. They do not need passports to go to heaven. From there, they will be looking down on earth and saying “what a world!”

To future leaders and those who fight in the shadows for justice, the lives of Benjamin Hooks and Dorothy Height should be an inspiration. As the Arabs of Morocco say, “Angels bend down their wings to a seeker of knowledge.”
