  •  Mary McLeod Bethune was a great Progressive! (6+ / 0-)

    Thank you so much for this diary. I think it is appropriate given the current political environment.

    Her example is one of how to not give up, or quit playing when you don't get your way. She, and other Progressives like her show us how to keep fighting inch by inch until we can take a mile.

    I'm so thankful they didn't work to hurt FDR even though they could have chosen to do so.

    "There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.".. Buddha
