". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Juanita Jeans': Texas's -- and all Women's -- Reproductive Freedom

Huge Women's Reproductive Rights Rally at the Texas capitol in Austen on July 1st.

High Noon, Monday, July 1st, on the south steps of the Texas capitol. Be there or don’t make history.
It will be hot.  Bring water for yourself, and a fan and a chair for me.  Wear orange.
You can sign up right here on Facebook. Or put it in the comments and I will pass it along.
Wonder what to wear?
These super cool tee-shirt will be for sale for $25.  The profit goes to Planned Parenthood, Battleground Texas, and – my personal favorite – the Texas Democratic Party.  Hey, we’ve got a new address –You can order one right here!

How I love Texas women -- let me count the ways I love you!  Starting with you are never afraid to be loud when it is called for.
