...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.

thank you Jay!

My grandmother used to be so grateful whenever I came to sit in the park with her and her "posse" - she said they often felt "irrelevant". Meanwhile I had such a grand old time listening to their stories - and I learned a lot - from recipes to remedies.
