The Great Emancipators - February 12

Today we commemorate the births, lives and contributions of two of our recent History's greatest men.

Charles Darwin, who helped free humanity from the walls of ignorance and superstition with which we'd lived throughout our evolution on this planet,

and Abraham Lincoln, whose wit and wisdom showed spectacularly just how much a dedication to knowledge and justice could do towards effecting Liberty and Justice for all human beings.

"doing what little one can to increase the general stock of knowledge is as respectable an object of life, as one can in any likelihood pursue"
Darwin

"Tell Tad the goats and father are very well -- especially the goats."
Lincoln
In honor of these two human beings of humble beginnings and diligence in their struggles to live and thrive in the world of homo, emancipate yourself today. Let your passions push the edge of whatever envelope is defining the limits of your freedom.

Be grateful that we live in a future which would have been culturally impossible to imagine had it not been for the passion and dedication of these two fantastically wonderful silly humans.

Be free and be glad.

Namaste

  1. Two of the most brilliant and important people who ever lived, and born on the same day and year! They don't make 'em like that anymore!
