Petition Update

Oh the irony

Jun 23, 2013 — We have had so many of our friends, family and supporters suggest we start a donation campaign to help us save this wonderful historic house. We can’t help but think how very backwards things can be sometimes. Asking for donations…to fight the city…which has just received federal money to tear down houses…paid for by you, by us and all of our tax dollars (and most likely at the expense of social security and future retirees) is difficult to get our minds around. It appears we are either fighting ourselves, not being represented properly or not having our voices heard…
This makes me think of one of my favorite quotes (among many favorite quotes) from Abraham Lincoln; “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
