A huge day for us. Just enormous. A giant leap.
One of those days that will enter the imagination, and stand as blow for
freedom and liberty. Egalite, fraternite, and perhaps a little bricolage.
It's a stand against the creep of a dependency. The sloth of
meritocracy. Lord, consider they humble servant. And I would go on to
paraphrase Philippians 2, but why further irritate the Almighty. Why
aggravate him on so proud a day with a verse or two about
vainglory from the King James Version.
Nor was it an easy thing to achieve. If you include the
mental preparation, the planning, the strategery, I'd
estimate thirty years followed by two hours with an 800
number listening to the rote. One part of which included the
phrase, "I can understand that," followed by a "But." And
fair warning for those who might boldly travel in our
footsteps, the solution might not be, "I am old, I am poor,
I am close to death." "I can understand that. But for
five dollars a month you can freeze your dish cable account
for nine months."
