The shiny crescent moon is gorgeous tonight, gracing us with its friendly, yet commanding presence over the western horizon, set against the deep azure blue jewel that is the sky. Four stars stretch horizontally down, across, below, and up, cradling the monthly visitor with a steady hand that serves as a symbol for the steadfast loyalty that the universe bestows upon us all, never failing to be consistent in its identity and nature, always providing us the opportunity for reflection and action, cleansing and rebuilding, confrontation and conflict followed by resolution.

East and West are united in their gazing upon the same moon and same stars. The imaginary sight lines generated by our eyes rise up all over the country like beacons of hope, calling us to a new generation of peaceful advancement and harmonizing of our individual pursuits. We needn't sacrifice our individuality and uniqueness in achieving collective goals. Autonomy supports the synchronization of plans and methods. The diversity of views and experiences makes for a rich tapestry of social interaction, which enables the promulgation of the massively powerful database that we call science, shared knowledge and learning.

I see even Australians are looking here, sharing our struggle, reading this blog, thinking about the night sky beyond their sunny boundaries. All people of goodwill are united in common purpose. Some mean well, but are mistaken, others know better and must be rebuked.

I look outside and I don't see a world where cunning, behind-the-scenes operatives get the last word. I see peace and tranquillity in the sky, not deception and strife. I imagine the golden mecca that is Gallaudet, pulsating with the vibrancy of flying hands and happy faces for time immemorial.

I can't picture anything differently. Can you?

We will win...
