We may have our foibles, but all the same, what a special place to live. And to study!
In honor of the holiday:
I'm thankful every day for the foresight shown by imperfect men in constructing a nation of promises. That universal rights business was powerful stuff; more powerful than they appreciated or envisioned at the time. We are so fortunate to have the ability to continue to grow toward the fulfillment of these promises.
