...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

This is hard to photograph.  Tom Williams was a friend and an art teacher in Ames.  He gave this to me.  He was not a Mason but he knew that I was and so he gifted this to me.  I have treasured it for many years.  I think it should go to the Grand Lodge Library but it may go somewhere else.  I haven't decided yet. In the meantime I enjoy having it.
