‘Freedoms are never free.’ This is what we tell our kids hoping that it sticks well into the future, when they’re out of our sight and living their lives fully on their own. Freedom in America must be maintained and managed, it is too often taken for granted by every one of us.
Have you forgotten where we (whites) came from?

We hope you have enjoyed a safe Memorial Day weekend thus far; many of you may be on the way back from visiting away from home. As we switch into full-on summer mode, we hope you will join us in celebrating life and love by leaving cruelty off your plates and out of your lives.
To help you in that end, we hope that you will consider this repost from last year. It includes a printable recipe card of one of our favorite cold salads,, and yes .. it’s easy. So easy, even an 11-year-old can make it.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend ..
and welcome, Summer Break!
