birthday thanks

I and Kevin Costner, ten years my junior, and the 38-year-old national president of the NAACP share birthdays. The Treaty of Paris was signed on our birthday in 1918, setting payment of war debts by Germans to their victors so exorbitant that a German public at the depth of thirties global meltdown voted to make Hitler their chancellor and gave him a whole slew of patriot acts. Such were results of attempts by winners of a war to dictate an end to all wars. This birthright humbles this old astrological goat’s aspirations to pacifying social relations, and leaves me enjoying memories of togetherness in my relations. Thanks for all the inspiration and life support that the sacred spirits of love and compassion have brought our ways. Happy birthday to US—l&p hal
