From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

9 Years Old is Too Young To Die

Gaily I lived as ease and nature taught,
And spent my little life without a thought,
And am amazed that Death, that tyrant grim,
Should think of me, who never thought of him.
~René Francois Regnier

Her name is Christina-Taylor Green,she was born on Sept.11,2001. While many partisans spent the day of her murder blaming each other ,some even cheering for her murderer and the rest of us merely trying to make sense of the nonsensical, we lost sight of the fact that a sweet little girl lay dead. Christina played baseball , danced ballet, sang in the church choir, was a gymnast and wanted to be a cheerleader someday. What a sad and tragic waste.

 Rest in Peace Christina
