Dear Mr. Wenger and Mr. Shaw:
Time cannot change our loss, but you have softened its sharpness with your own expressions of love and hope, purpose and action
Your tributes to Andy, to James and Michael are proper tributes to yourself, and to the continued, fearless commitment of our youth in this cause. They are the living promise of American and James, Michael and Andrew will always be alive in this promise. An old spirit has been renewed and is abroad once more in our land. It is certain now we shall overcome!
They and you are the strong but tender voices of humanity that have reached us from all parts of our country and many countries of the world. With this voice and in the same cause, Wendell Phillips, the great abolitionist, wrote after visiting the scene of Lovejoy’s death
Looking back how wise as well as noble his course seems! What world-wide benefactors these imprudent men – the Lovejoys, the [Breths], the Garrisons, the saints and the martyrs! How prudently men creep into the nameless graves, while now and then one or two forget themselves into immortality!
And so together our lives shave been touched by this immortality and because of it we shall never forget!
Carolyn & Robert Goodman
