A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on activism, right action, and action

My activism really is for myself, because I see places in the world where I feel I should be.  If there is something really bad, really evil, happening somewhere, then that is where I should be.  I need, for myself, to feel that I have stood there.  It feels a lot better than just watching it on television.
