...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


Another of my bookend collection.  


 Made by Goebel. These are Hummel figurines. They were produced in 1957. Goebel made four of the US. founding fathers in Masonic dress. Only about 1000 were made of each. These are considered bookends and are very rare and hard to find. It is 8 inches high.  On the bottom is the Hummel logo and the year 1957, also LA5A. In my research I was told they are worth $550.00 each. 
(I think that is an inflated price but I would never sell them.)
