i was warned not to come here. i was warned. they warned me. don´t stand behind this coffin. but why would i heave such a warning when a heart beat is silent and a child lies dead. dont stand behind this coffin. this boy was as pure and innocent as the driven snow. but i must stand here, for i have not given you what you should have. until we can walk abroad in daylight and recreate ourselves; stroll along the streets like boulevards; congregate in parks free from fear, our children laughing, our families mingling, our hearts joined, until that day we have no city. You can lable me a failure until that day. The first and probably only great mayor was greek. He was Pericles of Athens and he said that ALL THINGS GOOD OF THIS EARTH FLOAT INTO THE CITY BECAUSE OF THE CITY´S GREATNESS. well, we we´re great once. can we not be great again ?! now, i put this question to James Bone and there´s only silence. Yet could not anything pass from this sweet youth to me ?! could he not empower me to find in myself the strength to have the knowledge to summon up the courage to accomplish this seeming insurmountable task of making this city livible ?! just livible ? there was a palace that was a city. it was palace ! it was a palace and it can be a palace again !! in which there is no kings or queens or dukes or ealrs or princes but subject, all subjects beholding to each other to make a better place to live. is that so inconceivable ?? is it beyond our reach ?? because if it is, then we are nothing but sheep being herded to the final slaughterhouse !! I WILL NOT GO DOWN THAT WAY !! i choose to fight back ! i choose to rise, not fall ! i choose to live, not die ! and i know that whats within me is also within you !! that´s why i ask you now to join me. join me, rise up with me. rise up on the wings of this slain angel. we will pick up his standard, and raise it high, carry it forwards until this city, your city, our city, his city, is a palace again !!

What is the word that Al Pacino used which meant between men?

You keep looking at that thing as if it weren’t kosher.
