...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.

Jon was here. He was in town to go to a funeral and he wanted to see Cassie (and me (and Todd)). Cassie is not in good shape. She has been feeling poorly. Dr. Brenda looked her over and she has kidney disease. B G has worried about her but there is not much he can do.
Most of the time she is here watching the grass grow.
She has gotten blind also but she knows where to go and gets to her food knows how to find BG for scratches. She climbs up to him for sleeping also.
B G found a new bird. It is a Blue Jay.
B G likes it because it is like his name (Jay) -

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living."
A person who sees the good in things has good thoughts. And he who has good thoughts receives pleasure from life.
You have no need to travel anywhere - journey within yourself. Enter a mine of rubies and bathe in the splendor of your own Light.
"Exude happiness and you will feel it back a thousand times."
Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.
"Despite the forecast, live like it's spring."
"Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for a second time in the history of the world man will have discovered fire."
