"It is a revolutionary world we live in, and this generation at home and around the world has had thrust upon it a greater burden of responsibility than any generation that has ever lived. Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation; a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth; a young woman reclaimed the territory of France; and it was ayoung Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and the 32 year-old Thomas Jefferson who [pro]claimed that "all men are created equal."

No matter if you are male or female, you are part of this. You call your girls derogatory names for fun, you laugh at rape jokes, you talk with your boys about how much hotter that girl is when she doesn't talk, or how hideous that girl is, and it's good she has some athletic skill.
YOU. NEED. THIS.
It's not about the NFL...it's about humans.
It's about treating each other with respect.
And it starts with the "small things" so that big things like this don't happen.
WE NEEDED THIS.
Thank you, Keith Olbermann, for saying it like it needed to be said.
