While looking into the complexities of the purple pansy, I wondered what life would be like if everything was purple; then I remembered the words of Dan Aykroyd, a great Canadian-American Actor, who once wanted to be a Catholic priest, studied criminology & sociology; then dropped out and became a famous Comedian. Even though people think he's a funny man, I like his outlook on life:

There is something about the color purple that has always been a fascination with me. I recall the first time I saw the Rocky Mountains. I was a passenger in a car going to the West Coast. After a long nap in the car, my eyes opened up and the eyelids fluttered to the beauty of the purple mountains in the distance. The first thought that came to mind was, "O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain; For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea." There was such a sense of peace and pride --- Patricia Feager
"O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain;
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea."

December 21, 2015 - I am reminded of the color purple and it fills my heart with passion for our Military, Civil Servants, and all those who serve and protect, expecially those who have made our country great.
