...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

Two Chairs.

My Great-aunt Kate M. Cole had these chairs in her home.  I loved them.  I think she got them from my Great-aunt Ethyl Meeker and they probably came from Warren Meeker.  Or maybe from her mother (my great great grandmother) -  Anyway when my Great-aunt Kate died my grandfather was the executor he allowed me to work getting her house for sale.  I got the chairs for the work I did getting 3 floors ready for the sale. And there was a lot of "stuff" because my great aunt did not throw things away.  They are two of my treasures and I do love them.
