what a woman who could have joined the D.A.R. has learned about the socially-constructed, political notion of "race" by just paying attention and NOT keeping her mouth shut...
"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?" -- Dorothy Day
Amen. Nice thought and photo.

Hey, Stephen. Glad you like the post.And welcome to my house, tor. I checked out your blog and viewed your video. Interesting. I'm not sure how you wound up in these parts, but it's always cool to get new input of any kind. Thanks for dropping by. Hope we'll see more of you.
April 3rd, forty years ago quote:" I got to Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were out. What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers?Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord." MLK The day before he was assasinated.
And so we carry on, bubamarenya, you and me and SO many others. Thanks for being in my life.
Thank you for being in my life. I can't believe I didn't add in this comment how much I love Dorothy Day. I have been reading this book called Brave Hearts Rebel Spirts and i was reminded of her beautiful words.
