On the value of protesting, Eleanor Craig SL says: “I often think of a conversation I had with Dorothy Day when I was young and she was old. I asked her, since much of the protesting she had done had not succeeded, what was the point? Her reply came quickly: ‘I didn’t do it for the results, I did it because it was the right thing for me to do.’ I feel that’s what I’ve agreed to, to show up, walk shoulder to shoulder with others. To stand up and be counted.”
