Quotation of the Day for May 1, 2018

My Will is easy to decide,

For there is nothing To divide

My kin don't need to fuss and moan--

"Moss does not cling to a rolling stone"

My body?--Oh!--If I could choose

I would want to ashes it reduce,

And let The merry breezes blow

My dust to where some flowers grow

Perhaps some fading flower then

Would come to life and bloom again

This is my Last and Final Will.--

Good Luck to All of you,

- Joe Hill, labour activist. He wrote this will on November 18, 1915, the day before being executed for a murder he had been framed for. Happy May Day!
