...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.

Throwback Thursday

I took this picture in 1976 in Cairo.  The two story structures in the foreground are houseboats.  One of them housed the Papyrus Institute and we had an incredible lecture showing how papyrus is made.  Somewhere I have over 400 slides and I would love to have them so I could see them again.  Anyway I have this one and I do hope you enjoy it.
