than a dream,
it was a place
she needed to visit
to find herself.
and when she returned to the city,
you could see the sun
in her eyes, the wind
in her hair, and taste
the infinite salt
on her lips.

November Eleventh is Veteran's Day.
Stop and take a moment to remember that freedom is not free. Our freedoms have been paid for by the blood and souls of our fallen.
It was November 1919. President
Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November Eleventh as the first commemoration of what was then known as Armistice Day
with the following words:
"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations..."
"Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul."
~ Michel de Montaigne
Quotes about Liberty
“We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are
created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty and
the pursuit of Happiness.”
~ Thomas Jefferson
"This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith."
~ Lyndon B. Johnson
"America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact — the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality."
~ Adlai Stevenson
"All we have of freedom,
all we use or know --
This our fathers bought for us
long and long ago."
~ Rudyard Kipling
"Wake her with
the voice of cannon--
give her colors to the morn!
Make the day right glorious
that saw the nation born;
Born to a life supernal,
like the bird of storied fame--
From the ashes of dead empires
springs her altar's sacred flame."
~ Elizabeth M. Griswold
"We on this continent should
never forget that men first
crossed the Atlantic not to find
soil for their ploughs but to
secure liberty for their souls."
~ Robert J. McCracken
"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led,like sheep to the slaughter."
~ George Washington
"Freedom is never more than
one generation away from
extinction. We didn't pass it to
our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected,
and handed on for them to
do the same."
~ Ronald Reagan
"I do not agree with
what you have to say,
but I'll defend to the death
your right to say it."
