August 26, 1920 Women’s Rights To Vote, 19th Amendment, went into effect after many years of campaigning by Women’s Sufferage groups, especially Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, Katherine Morey, and many others who fought and suffered so valiantly for this.
So thankful to all those women who gave of their time, effort and sufferings to win us women today the right to vote!
Let’s not let them down! Let’s not let their efforts be wasted or done in vain. Let’s be sure to vote!!
from “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”, a Christian hymn written by Edward Mote, a pastor at Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham, West Sussex. Mote wrote around 100 hymns, this one, which he wrote in 1834, being the best known of his.
As I was walking to my car I noticed the many leaves scattered all across the parking lot. Their colors vividly showed against the black pavement. The leaves seemed to all be from the colorful Maple trees that were planted nearby—except—right by my car I noticed one lonely Oak leaf lying in among all the Maple leaves. Thus, an inspiration for today’s poem.
