It's an evocative phrase, thought with meaning and imagery: valiant American colonists, underarmed, underfed, struggling for independence from tyranny; a stalwart and purposeful Martin Luther King, Jr, leading throngs of African-Americans through southern streets, struggling for political and social equality; masses of dis-illusioned Chinese students in Tiananmen Square, struggling, to gain the first breaths of democracy while, thousands of miles away, more fortunate soulmates bring walls crashing down in Eastern Europe.If history is a tapestry, it is clear that major sections were woven through the on going struggles of ordinary people to achieve democratic change.
