This made me stop and think

Someone somewhere once said something like, if we don't all hang together, we shall all hang separately, or words to that effect.

For the upcoming year, I would hope that Americans everywhere will put aside their petty differences and come together in a spirit of unity and peace.

I read the following in an email I received, and thought it was worth passing on:

"When they came for the gypsies, I said nothing, because I wasn't a gypsy. When they came for the homosexuals, I said nothing, because I wasn't a homosexual. When they came for the Jews, I said nothing, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I said nothing, because I wasn't a Catholic......then they came for me, and there was no one left to defend me."

I hope our country comes together for the greater good before it's too late.

Thanks for coming by and leaving my the fun gifts. I appreciate you and Bill for being our home and visiting teachers.

I've left a Christmas poem for you on my blog. I hope that you can drop by and read it.

Love, Lura
