Be steadfast. Don’t dwell on the death of law around you. Instead tend the dying with comfort and plant seeds where they may grow. Help one another.

Attend local political party meetings and shine the light; be the light. Want better politicians. Become one; but better. Help give people a better choice. If we don’t, who will?
