Version 2.075

A bit over an hour ago, it was announced that Representative John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights movement, has died at 80 years old. This week, we also learned that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is battling cancer again, but she continues serving on the Supreme Court, while on chemotherapy.

One of my neighbors has a sign on her lawn with the text of the First Amendment and I thought it worthy to take a photo and post it on Instagram. A Portuguese friend of mine commented on that photo that the Founding Fathers were very wise, but where were their political offspring today. If one reads American history, two things transpire: (1) it is not as pretty as some people think, and (2) some people are good, others are bad.

Today, we still have people that are willing to sacrifice their life and livelihood for the common good. There are always people who rise to the occasion.
