I was tagged by at least 3 people for this meme some time ago, Lizza, Julia, Anndi...anyone else? Thanks guys. It was a fun exercise. Now if I could just find some of those stockings to go with my pencil skirt.
Rules: Pass it on to five other bloggers.
Tell them to open the nearest book to page 46.
Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences.
The closest book, not the coolest, or the one you think will sound the best.
Found on my living room table an arm's length away from the laptop on the couch. From a 1969 Hallmark Edition of Robert F. Kennedy's speeches. It's called Robert F. Kennedy: Promises To Keep copyright 1969
This is p. 46, sentence five and the following five sentences:
and then...."Our problems, having grown to the size of the world, if not of the solar system, no longer seem our own. Each day we are required to respond to new crises created by people whose names we cannot pronounce in lands of which we have never heard. After a time, the capacity to respond begins to flag; and we turn, not cheerfully, but almost in despair, to the sports pages and the comics.
And yet I would say to you that the stake is just as personal today as it was a century ago, the obligation just as personal, the capacity to affect the course of history just as great. What we require is not the self-indulgence of resignation from the world but the hard effort to work out new ways of fulfilling our personal concerns and our personal responsibility."
The wisdom of Bobby Kennedy.

Go forth and meme.
So let it be written.
So let it be done.
