man with his 2-year old was trying to say to the CNN reporter.
I say, the earth belongs to each of these generations during its course, fully and in its own right. The second generation receives it clear of the debts and incumbrances of the first, the third of the second, and so on. For if the first could charge it with a debt, then the earth would belong to the dead and not to tI he living generation. Then, no generation can contract debts greater than may be paid during the course of its own existence.

I like what sailorwifenmom says. The thing that gets me is that in the last 90 days we have seen too much change. It's like that saying about pregnancy, it took nine months to put the weight on, it is going to take nine months to lose it. I think that if change in going to happen it can't be crammed down our throats. It needs to come slowly because the problem in our country and the problems in our society didn't happen over night. With this change, our civil liberties should not be jeopardized, but a solution should be made with full thought not a 2 hour lunch break. The quote is marvelous! It should be widely distributed so that others can partake from its wisdom.
