If you could rewrite one pivotal moment in history, good or
bad, to make a change, which moment would that be AND what are some of
the consequences that you believe might come from that change?
This is a terrible thing to get me started on! I think that *if* it were possible, I would love to change the outcome of the Civil War. BUT – you have to give me a chance to explain!
* I believe that slavery was already a dying institution – it had been abolished in England in a much more peaceable way, and it could have been here, too – which I believe would have saved us from much of the modern racism.
* As Charles Dickens put it in 1862 “The Northern onslaught upon slavery is no more than a specious humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the Southern states.”
* Lincoln said: “I agree with Judge Douglas that he [a black] is not my equal in many respects, certainly not in color — perhaps not in intellectual and moral endowments; but in the right to eat the bread without leave of anybody else which his own hand earns, he is my equal and the equal of Judge Douglas, and the equal of every other man.” – Oct. 13, 1858, during his famed debates with Judge Stephen A. Douglas
OK, Just a few thoughts on a topic I am passionate about. Do you regret asking?
What’s the most unusual hobby you have? How did you get started with it?
Maybe it would be my love of vintage buttons? Or all things vintage? I don’t know how it started, I guess I was born that way.
Name one thing for each of the following: Favorite smell, texture, view, sound, taste.
Smell: My babies. Their hair, their yummy breath, their sweet skin.
Texture: The different consistencies of my babies thighs. They start out sort of rubbery and progress to a softer squishier texture.
Sound: The sound of my little girls laughing with their Papa. And the sound of Dan singing them to sleep. Or his voice quoting poetry and passages from the Bible softly in their ears as they drift off to slumber land.
Taste: My husband!
