“silence and indifference of the good people”

It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation, not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people who would bomb a church in Birmingham, Alabama but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say wait on time.  Somewhere we must some to see that human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability.  It comes though the tireless efforts and the persistent work of dedicated individuals who are willing to be co-workers with God. — MLK, Speech at Illinois Wesleyan University, 1966
