...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.

We had some rain and some nice weather and we got to sit out some and BG is upset with his chair and things are pretty much the way this week as usual so there are some pretty pictures for you to look at.
BG washed our beds and waited for August to be over.
I slept on my back. BG says I liked to sleep that was nice for me.
Enjoyed our porch.
BG took some pictures of Todd also.

"Were I to be the founder of a new sect,
I would call them Apiarians, and, after the example of the bee, advise them to extract the honey of every sect."
- Thomas Jefferson
Something opens our wings.
Something makes hurt disappear.
We taste only sacredness.

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said he'd make a deal with his son, "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car."
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer
and they agreed on it.
After about six weeks his father said, "Son, you've brought your grades
up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm
disappointed you haven't had your hair cut."
The boy said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've
noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the
Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there's even strong
evidence that Jesus had long hair."
I Love the Dad's reply!
"Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?"
