Before the night-terrors began, dreams were in play -- dreams of racial and gender equality, even equal pay.

Healthy dreams of affordable care for mind, body and soul; Dreams of an Equal Rights Amendment, a livable minimum wage, single payer and Medicaid extended.

Dreams prioritizing support for our troops, when Veterans, sustaining their defense against traumatic mental and physical damage, unemployment and homelessness descended.

I remember it well: our cornerstone of rockets' red glare bursting into the fresh air of Freedoms ensconced forever in the firm grip of a French Lady promising Liberte to masses yearning to breathe free -- until we slammed the Golden Rule door.

I remember it well. We met at the 1621 treaty signing between the Wampanoag tribe and the Pilgrims of the Plymouth colony. I was on time.

No, you are remembering too late.

I remember it well. We dined with New World discoverer, Columbus and friends.

We dined alone, in Rio de Janeiro until that Italian explorer, Amerigo Vespucci sailed ashore like some travelling troubadour.

A tenor sang

No, a baritone

Ah, yes, I remember it well. The New World Order called, America, created under God's moon.

There was no moon nor America that night, and it was South America

That's right. That's right.

It warms my heart, to know that you, remember still, the way you do.

Ah, yes, I remember it well: How often I've thought of that first summer night

It, was a brisk March evening.
