    The link on the first retweet in the rafflecoptor does not work. I didn’t know if anyone had told you or not. I looked through all of your tweets to see which other one had a good many retweets to guess which one it was suppose to be but no other ones had many of any. Other than the one in the last retweet option.
    Just thought I’d tell you FYI.

    I really like those Emerson quotes
    Also, it’s kind of cool that you included a quote from Dr. Benjamin Spock because my aunt actually knew him and was involved with his anti-war activism
