This morning the sun is rising over our great lake, in this, our democratic village of Shorewood.
People are being beaten and killed in the streets of cities and villages of Iran where people also vote for their leaders. Democracies elect those who will exercise power over them.
The great soldier who later just faded away rode against world war veterans who demonstrated in the streets of Washington.
Civil rights demonstrators were beaten in the streets of American cities.
Governments beat and kill in their own name, in the name of the law, of government and of tradition. Muslims, Jews and Christians beat and kill in the name of superior gods and the name of the law.
Muslims, Jews and Christians in Shorewood today display butterflies in their streets here in Shorewood as the sun rises over our great lake. In other places, the sun also rises.
