...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 an antique that I got from my grandmother.  Actually I got it from my Mother as she knew I wanted it and my aunt Ellen had gotten from my grandfather's things when he passed and she wanted it and when she passed I got it.  The ladle is from my great-great Aunt Sadie Smith.  I got it because I have the name Simser and the ladle is engraved with an "S".
