“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

Independence Day

 In 1776 our founders set forth with a bold experiment - that government existed to serve the people, and not the reverse. 

There were some things that could have been better then. There have been mistakes along the way. We have drifted in many ways from that initial vision, sadly. 

But, consider the fact that to this day we are blessed enough to live in a nation that people will literally risk death to enter. Despite the challenges we face, we have freedoms and abundance which are unequaled in history.

May we strive to remember this, and to find our unity once again.
