November 19th 1915 - Joe Hill was killed. This was his last letter:
To W. D. Haywood. Chicago, Illinois,
Goodbye Bill: I die like a true rebel. Don’t waste any time mourning — organize! It is a hundred miles from here to Wyoming. Could you arrange to have my body hauled to the state line to be buried? I don’t want to be found dead in Utah.
- Joe Hill
Hill's phrase, "Don't mourn - organize!" has been pushing me this past week to engage as much as a can in the struggle for justice.
