And for those who seek to advance their aims by not giving us ice cream and putting us in time out, we say to you know that “Our cries are louder and cannot be silenced.  You cannot outlast us and we will defeat you.”

Don’t tell me we can’t change. Our diapers are changed seven, eight times a day.  We can be the change we want to see in our world.
