America – Walt Whitman
Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair’d in the adamant of Time.
My favorite presidential quotes:
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe
We grow by dreams. All big men are dreamers, some of us let dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days…to the sunshine and light which always come
The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
May we continue to live lives worthy of those who have sacrificed on our behalf. Amen.
