Tuesday Nov 4th- Tapestry
Behind every argument is someone's ignorance.
Louis D. Brandeis (1856 - 1941)
It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them.
Pierre Beaumarchais (1732 - 1799)
I haven't posted about politics/the candidates in general. I don't generally! However whatever the outcome. I hope the individuals elected will be respected for whom they are. I know I would never be put in the positions they are seeking! and I congratulate them for doing so either local or to the highest post! I also am so grateful to be able to live in a country who has the ability to vote!
Today we are hanging a tapestry that was given to me by dau#1 of the grand kids-so lovely to look at! It reminds me of the tapestry of our country which has been sewn together by families such as mine! AN American yes, but hewn from the English, Scotch,Irish, American Indians, Canadians, Italians, Dutch and so forth! My mom was a naturalized citizen, and was so proud to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. My older brother was born in England as my mom a 'war bride'. Our family ties have dotted the world over, and I am always so proud to be an American!
