Congratulations: (n) words expressing praise for an achievement or good wishes on a special occasion
Congratulations are in order:
To anyone who is not pissing on others because he or she is pissed off
To people of either gender who realize equality is never achieved through separation, but rather, mingling similarities
To the pilgrims who understand that culture has become the new Jim Crow, to separate us without making it look painful
Congratulations are also in order to those who believe in America to such a degree that they are prepared to question a voting system and electoral college which is not only antiquated, but preventing us from electing excellent leadership.
Congratulations to the people who are not afraid to speak their minds without apology.
Congratulations are in order to the human beings who understand we are not really spiritual, but are able to learn how to have enough spirit to keep from hating and destroying one another.
Congratulations are in order to the businesses which realize it is a damnable offense to make huge profits off the sickness of other travelers.
Congratulations are in order to anyone, anywhere, at any time, who can maintain a civil tongue, and salt their conversation with some humor.
Congratulations are in order to a faith that demands works–otherwise appearing dead.
Congratulations are in order to those who appreciate and utilize science without worshipping it, but instead, challenge the educational system to continue its evolution.
Congratulations are in order to you, if you resist accepting the meager offerings presented to you, but instead believe that somewhere in the pasture is a four-leaf clover, and in the clouds, a silver lining.
