For Freedom

…to apprehend that the will, moral agency, and social responsibility are to be taken seriously;
…to observe that justice is not blind and that justice without mercy is the cruelest form of injustice;
…to learn that pleasure must not be secured by the expense of another human life;
…to be grateful for the sacrifices of ancestors;
…to recognize that blood is the price for freedom.

Historical Backbone of a Dream Narrative

…to history that never calls me human…
…to the backbone of a free labor economy…
…to men called beast, full of fear and rage…
…to narrative, not truth…
…to a dream fixed for few, myth for most, nothing for _________…
…to struggle maligned and peace assassinated…
…to a man called everything except, Mr. President.

Happy Holidays

We mark the beginning of this holiday season with photos of opalescent glass at Trinity Church. John LaFarge and Louis Comfort Tiffany created many of the late 19th century masterpiece windows at Trinity. It was a joy to make these pictures. May love and light shine into your life during the holidays. #buffalotour #happyholidays #peaceandlove
