Power concedes nothing without demand.
- Frederick Douglass
I suspect Douglass was referring to human power. When it comes to Universal Power, we simply have to ask (very precisely) for what we want in order to receive our greater good.

Our beautiful new chairs were made locally from island wood. The wood is called "summwood" here, not sure if that's the name used elsewhere. Dad designed them and they were built in his woodworking shop by two contracted carpenters. (Plug: Let us know if you need furniture built here in Roatan. The machines sit idle, otherwise).

I swore to never be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides, Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim, silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

You did good, friends. Yes We Can. All and every single one of us.
There was definitely a shift that happened tonight. We are not the same human race were even a few hours ago. Tonight love won over hate. Hope won over fear. Optimism won over despair. Perhaps the human race has finally learned that it is our differences that make us strong and capable of overcoming any obstacle. I'm filled with hope and optimism for our tomorrow. It's going to take a lot of work to build this new future, but I truly believe we are now on the right track.
