You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea

It's been fifty years, today.  Fifty years since a cowardly product of this state's wretched obsession with hate and self-destruction lashed out and killed a man dreaming of and working for a better future for us all.

Mr. Evers' dedication to Mississippi and those of us who live here was staggering. May God bless the soul of Medgar Evers, may He comfort those who loved him, and may He give us the strength to continue the work Mr. Evers could not complete.
