I propose a toast.
To all the workers, past and present, not just in this country but throughout. To your hard-work and dedication. Because without it, there is no strength, no prosperity, and no well-being for the land you call your own. You are the foundation. Unfortunately, many of you workers are denied this honor and respect as a result of unemployment, underemployment, unjust wages, wage theft, abuse, and exploitation. So here’s to progress for future change. And here’s to you. May you never get older, never lack heart, never give up, and may each and everyone of you always give the devil what he’s due. Thank you. Bottoms up!

For whatever we lose
(a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves
we find in the sea.

in 1914, a boy chained his bike to a tree, he never returned.
Coolest picture ever.
Does anyone ever wonder why he never returned?
