Some thoughts I am having after
- Cherry blossoms. Ranger Jen mentioned soil compaction as a problem caused by the volume of people visiting and walking on the grass/soil around the trees.
I never believed in term limits, thinking democracy was the limiting mechanism.
But I have grown so goddamn tired of the same miserable old bastards running everything, they won't retire, they won't die, my whole life it's these same assholes and they'll probably outlive me.
I should also say, this is what I spoke (except for the 4th part) on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Tuesday evening during our
poetry slam. I know it isn't "poetry," but I felt it needed to be said.
Also, on this day in 1864, almost a decade before Theodore Roosevelt, Lincoln laid the ground work for the first National Park by preserving Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove with California as steward.
On 12/1/1862, Lincoln said the following words to Congress. These words are still applicable today.
"We can succeed only by concert. It is not ‘can any of us imagine better?’ but, ‘can we all do better?’ The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present." 1/
