Vague memory

"You can not help the poor by destroying the rich. You can not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You can not bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You can not lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You can not further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You can not build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence. You can not help men permanently by doing for them what they should and could do for themselves." --Abraham Lincoln

Taking responsibility for yourself, what a novel idea. He was such a wise man. Thanks.

Changes
Love the new look. It has a very happy feel when it pops up. I guess ole Abe got a few things right. The killing of the vandal in 1982 was poetic justice. I for one cannot wrap my head around what vandels get out of their destruction. We have a problem in TN with grave yard vandels. There is probably a special space in Hell for them. Peace
