A Nation's Strength
Not gold, but only man can make
A people great and strong;
Men who, for truth and honor's sake,
Stand fast and suffer long.
Brave men who work while others sleep,
Who dare while others fly--
Thy build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The blogging world lost an icon last week. Sparkle the Designer cat passed away on Thursday. We can't even begin to say how sad we are and how leaky our eyes are. We will just say Goodbye Sparkle. You were an inspiration and a wonderful role model for other kitties and bloggers.
