...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.

My Teachers were Miss Rogness(sp) and Mr. Cole and I was given a gift from one of the students. His last name was Sellers. It is a shot glass filled with sand from the painted desert.
The gift that this student gave to me is truly a treasure because it reminds me of him and of all of the students that passed my classroom.
You can find one like it on e-bay for about $25.
