My virtue is that I say what I think, my vice that what I think doesn't amount to much.

Children On The Outside Looking In

The picture above of black children looking in on a whites-only playground in Mobile, Alabama, 1956 reminds me of this touching poem by Sarah Norcliffe Cleghorn:

 The golf links lie so near the mill 
 That almost every day 
 The laboring children can look out 
 And see the men at play.
