“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Inspiration of the day

The title of the clip is "Dancing Auschwitz: I Will Survive"

A survivor of the Holocaust, his daughter, and granddaughters visited several of the camps and memorials throughout Europe, in a reminder of the ability of the human spirit to survive even the darkest of evils.

For those who find such things strange - remember, darkness is not defeated when we cower from the memory and fear to speak its name; it is defeated when we mock and laugh at it, when we bring it into the light and show that it has lost the power to terrify us.

Never again.

I'd heard about this and my immediate reaction was to file it under the category of "strange but not earth shaking". Now that I've seen it I think it really is a bit of life affirming expression. His survival, longevity, return, and ability to shake his booty at the site really was the ultimate triumph over his enemy. Big thumb up from me! Thanks for posting it.
