Ain't Scared of Your Jails

The most amazing thing to me about the whole movement was the fact that they were able to refrain from using any form of violence. The history of this country seems to suggest that whenever someone wanted something changed, they would fight for it. For this movement to be successful without any type of violence, or war, is just amazing. It's even more unbelievable the commitment the protesters had to the cause. "We're willing to accept death". The fact that they would go that far, without retaliating, shows how strong they believed in the cause. Even more impressive is the amount of supporters that still wanted to join the movement even after witnessing the violence against others.

  1. I totally agree with this, to except death, without fighting back, for a cause is a HUGE commitment. Im sure there are not many Americans who would be willing to do that today.
