A month ago, we were looking at this...

Yesterday, I took this picture, from our garden...  

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be standing on a counter picket line protesting the arrival of the Westboro Baptist Church to picket us with hate signs and abusive spiritual behavior. The students, rather than shutting their doors and hiding, have risen up to organize this counter protest. I find in this hope. I find in this the power of community, friendship and love. I find in this the kind of hope that you see in the beauty of the first flower of spring that bravely blossoms, even though winter may not have lost its grip yet on the world. 

May we all find Hope in this world, for it is all around us. 


  1. Have fun at the counter-protest tomorrow. I'm sure it will be very empowering.

  2. I'm standing with you the whole time brother!
