    just turned 28.

    I do remember Richard Nixon, and the second moon landing in 72 (my memory extends to birth, I'm one of those rare folks) and my first civics lesson. Let me tell you about it...

    My father told bastrop and me bedtime stories every night, and he'd record them on tape because he travelled for business often. On election eve, 76, daddy went out to vote after coming home on the train from Boston. He was sitting down with we kids and I asked him if he had voted for President Ford. He told me it was none of my business (he voted for Carter) and proceeded to teach us about voting.

    I hate to brag, but bastrop and I were lucky.

      good ones who taught me about the importance of voting, civil involvement, activism, standing up for equality and for the underdog, taught me to be compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of others and more.

        as American as you can get. And by "right" I mean equality and justice.
