It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life-the sick, the needy and the handicapped.~Hubert Humphrey, in a speech at the dedication of the Hubert Humphrey building, Nov. 1, 1977.
