Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience, but the conscience of the whole of humanity.  Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize the voice of justice.

The whole point of life was you couldn’t ever be sure what would happen next.  Sometimes what happened was good, sometimes not, but there were always surprises.

oh, how scary and wonderful it is that letters and words
can change our lives simply by being next to each other.

My Children

It is not how much I have gathered
Through my honest work or even greed
In the end possessions won’t matter
But what flowers from each planted seed
I wanted them to have all my heart
And leave no part of my love unused
Give them an easier place to start
Let them find their own dreams to pursue
I wonder will they remember well
The lessons that I have tried to teach
Those things that I tried to gently tell
To show that hope is within their reach
To show them not to stand on the stage
Instead intermingle with the crowd
Always have the want to turn the page
Be the one of whom they could be proud
They’re the footprints that I leave behind
They will be my only legacy
They will be the story brought to mind
When my grandchildren remember me
