We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
I wish you a very happy 4th of July weekend. Our country was founded on great ideals. Some of those ideals have been realized, and others have been greatly abused. The United States is a work in progress. Let's all work for progress so we all can share in this great experiment in freedom and justice.
On a personal note, this time was once a great family multi-day picnic/clambake. It is kind of a sad thing for me that I have been excluded from that event over the past four years. The life of someone who crosses the gender boundaries can be very hard and often lonely. On the bright side I did go to a birthday party of a friend yesterday and that was very nice. The rain was kind of a bother, but the party was nice all the same.
Love to all,
