  •  Dear Diarist, (0+ / 0-)

    Read those words.  Read them again.  Read them until their meaning no longer acts as a weight against your defensiveness.  Read them until they sink in.  Read them until you can recognize the evils you bear and how willingly you endure them.  Read them until you're aware of the degree to which you have become accustomed to them.  Read them until you realize that those who wrote those words had less of a capacity to suffer the banality of evil than you do.

    Read them, do not simply post them in an attempt to demonstrate your love of country.  Read them.  And then LIVE accordingly.

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
