Quote of the Day – Thurgood Marshall on the Constitution

Today’s the day. The 9th Circuit court of appeals has issued its notice of ruling. Today, the court will rule whether California’s Proposition 8 is Constitutional or not. I thought it was a good time to quote one of the greatest Supreme Court Justices, Thurgood Marshall.

Some may more quietly commemorate the suffering, struggle, and sacrifice that has triumphed over much of what was wrong with the original document, and observe the anniversary with hopes not realized and promises not fulfilled. I plan to celebrate the bicentennial of the Constitution as a living document, including the Bill of Rights and the other amendments protecting individual freedoms and human rights. – Thurgood Marshall
