"I remember a friend of mine describing Brown v. Board of Education as being the example of sending the kids in to do what the adults wouldn't do. The adults wouldn't live together, wouldn't integrate the neighborhoods so we sent the kids in to integrate the schools," said Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on CNN. 
"And the power, the enrichment of leading an integrated life around people who were different, bringing them to your table, bringing them into your into your lives, into your friendships, into your love, which is how my wife and I have tried to raise our kids and I think has made for a much richer life for us. And I think in many, many other quarters, a richer country."
