Denounce the government and embrace
the flag. Hope to live in that free
republic for which it stands.
— Wendell Berry, Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front
With gratitude for those who have sacrificed that I might have the opportunity to be free… I will be spending this day in work and thought.
For thought, I’ll begin by reading the text of the Declaration of Independence. It’s been too long.
And then, some working for freedom.
