I love this battle cry! It can be used for anyone searching for justice in this world.
The story behind this quotation is one about justice. This quote is from the first issue of William Lloyd Garrison’s anti-slavery newspaper, The Liberator. For more than thirty years, he spoke out against slavery. He was anti-slavery far before it was fashionable to be against slavery. Garrison was born in the United States and joined the Abolition Movement when he was twenty-five years old.
From 1831 to 1865, Garrison published The Liberator, never missing an issue. He was so passionate about Abolition that he refused to retreat a single inch and he was most definitely heard. Next time you’re feeling defeated in what you do, remember William Lloyd Garrison. He was willing to fight for what he believed for over thirty years. Take his battle cry as your own and gain strength from it.
