...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Found this

Found this on Wade's Blog. It is good to remember.

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." Martin Luther King

"Let no man pull you low enough to hate him" Martin Luther King

Eleanor Roosevelt said:
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
The news tonight said that Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year. I wonder if that has been my problem the last couple of days. I am really going to try to get past it and realize that I have been consenting to allow another to make me feel inferior. So right now I am going to watch Craig Ferguson. Read Antony and Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough during the commercials and to hell with depression. You are loved. Hugs, j
