Washington State passed the 19th Amendment on March 22, 1920, five months prior to the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 19th Amendment guaranteed women’s right to vote in the U.S. The GU commemorative parade is a sustainable, non-consumer, inclusive event.

This essay will begin with a sad story — about a family in turmoil. Their story mirrors what is happening in the larger society — the struggle over politics, culture and how to engage each other on those topics. I tell this story with the permission of the person involved. It is not pretty.

After All these Years, I Have a Pet

I have a pet. For this week’s column, I was planning to write about Donald Trump and anti-Semitism, or Donald Trump and his tax returns, or Donald Trump and the various criminal investigations that have him in the cross hairs.

Baha’is believe other manifestations include Krishna, Zoroaster and Buddha.
