Ward House

Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history

from Abraham Lincoln’s second annual message to congress, December 1, 1962.  Another amazing quote

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can excercise their constitutional right of amending it, or excercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

Robyyn, in Womennotdabbling, sums it all up for me; the We’re History post.  I cannot say it any better and have realized that I have been asleep too long.  National politics seems so very daunting that I will need to begin at home and allow my stone’s throw to ripple through the rest of the community and eventually touch every shore.
