"A human life, I think, should be well rooted in some area of native land where it may get the love of tender kinship for the face of the earth, for the labors men go forth to, for the sounds and accents that haunt it, for whatever will give that early home a familiar unmistakable difference amidst the future widening of knowledge. The best introduction to astronomy is to think of the nightly heavens as a little lot of stars belonging to one's own homestead." - George Eliot
I survived. Got out alive. Headed West to a better life. Better than i deserve. A very different life. A life in the heart of a great State. The beating heart of American exceptionalism. America resurgent. I am going to be part of it. Advance the Colors.
