Cory Booker

“Cory Booker: Yale law school graduate, Stanford football star, Rhodes scholar. He directed his talents where they were needed most, to the streets of Newark, New Jersey as an outstanding Mayor.”

Actions speak louder than Words—or Beliefs.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” ~ 1 John 3:18

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people;

before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children;

before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.

In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

~ Mayor Cory Booker
