To the Oak Park Village Board and all Oak Parkers who believe an injustice has occurred in your village:

“For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” John F. Kennedy

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor. It must be demanded by the oppressed.” Martin Luther King Jr.

“We have been too quiet for too long.” John Lewis

“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” John F. Kennedy

“If not us, then who? If not now, then when?” John Lewis
