On the power of my brand new passport
by Annie Muse
…in which Annie takes a forward look on this Independence Day, 2012 — and celebrates getting an “F” in passports.
A post on the power of my brand new passport, on America, and on Freedom, all in one quote from pages 20 and 21 of the passport booklet, issued by the United States of America.
For this is what America is all about. It is the uncrossed desert and the unclimbed ridge. It is the star that is not reached and the harvest sleeping in the unplowed ground. Is our world gone? We say, “Farewell.” Is a new world coming? We welcome it — and we will bend it to the hopes of man.
from the Inaugural Address of Lyndon B. Johnson, Wednesday, January 20, 1965
