Will say it again…
In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. – Mark Twain
God Bless America!
And God Bless the midlife heretic who fights for freedom from the status quo. Once accomplished and defended, it is a freedom known as authenticity.
We cherish authenticity in others. We long for it ourselves.
