To-day and in the coming days

* replaced washers in bathroom faucet (separate entry on that).
* using paper towels, cleaned up the floor around the faucet.
* turned out to stand in the rain by St. Peter's Catholic Church at 86th and S.E. Foster in Portland in solidarity for the rights of people to attend church in peace. A few weeks ago people were harassed entering and leaving the church by people who hurled insults at them and questioned their living here in the U.S. The churchgoers mainly speak Spanish and come originally from Mexico and there are probably some who came here without government permission. Regardless, no human in the borders of this country should suffer harassment or persecution for exercising their rights. We must stand behind our Constitution as something for all people within our borders and must be gracious and giving enough to everyone here, not just some. How best to spread freedom across the world but by starting at home!
