Thurgood Marshall, the grandson of an enslaved man, became the first African American to be sworn in as a justice on the Supreme Court. Before that appointment, he led NAACP’s legal team which ended racial segregation in US public schools (and incidentally, won more cases before the US Supreme Court than any other American).
Having developed a profound sensitivity to injustice, Justice Marshall established a record of supporting the voiceless American; a quote says what was on his heart:
“In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.”
Justice Marshall died on January 24, 1993.
May Christians, karma believers, practitioners of religions and spiritual ethics pay tribute to our fellow beings (and if this kind of karma is returned to us, let us accept the gift with thanksgiving, learn the lesson even better, and put into practice how to honor one another).
