...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 brought this inlaid box from Egypt in 1976.  It was the trip of a lifetime.  The first box was for me.  I loved it and have my Scottish Rite Membership Patent in it..(Which was appropriate as that was when I became a 32° Mason.







Another box which I also got at the same time which I gave to Doc and Rita Getz who were wonderful friends.  When they passed the box was returned to me and that where I keep my Masonic postcards.
