And You Lift Me

A  L  O  H  A !
I'll lift you 

and you lift me, 

and we'll both 

ascend together.

John Greenleaf Whittier

The two most 

powerful warriors are 

patience and time. 

Leo Tolstoy

Stealing A Drink

In wine there is wisdom,

in beer there is freedom, 

in water there is bacteria.     

Benjamin Franklin

Every second is 

of infinite value. 


The future has a way 

of arriving unannounced. 

George F. Will

When I was a kid, you could walk into Independence Hall in Philadelphia - the place where the USA was born - and touch the Liberty Bell. It was big, cold, and had a crack in it. The crack had metal repairs; Round pieces of metal wedged in to hold the bell together. 

Independence Hall was at that time a dusty old building that had simply endured as the city grew around it, not yet a polished treasure. Especially in that day, the spirit of our founders hovered everywhere around a school child. 

And the bell. You could touch the bell with your own hands. No glass. It was right there to spend a moment with: the bell that proclaimed liberty throughout the land. It has a long, jagged crack. It is obviously not perfect. 
But nothing human is. 

Together we build an always more perfect union. 

Police are not the enemy - nor is the very American 
yearning to be better, to shine on a hill. . . . 
proclaiming Liberty. . . . everywhere. . . 
to ALL!

Love You,
