This evening at 5 PM St. John United Church of Christ and PFLAG Kankakee will hold a candlelight prayer vigil for all those affected by the tragedy in Orlando. The church is located at 1045 W. River Street. Please spread the word.
Where all your rights have become only an accumulated wrong, where men must beg with bated breath for leave to subsist in their own land, to think their own thoughts, to sing their own songs, to gather the fruits of their own labours, and, even while they beg, to see things inexorably withdrawn from them – then, surely, it is a braver, a saner and truer thing to be a rebel, in act and in deed, against such circumstances as these, than to tamely accept it, as the natural lot of men.
– Sir Roger Casement
