After a weekend of squalor and bloodshed in Charlottesville, Thomas Jefferson's home...

Heather Heyer who gave the last full measure of her devotion at her first political protest.

Grateful remembrance.

Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen and Trooper Pilot Berke M.M. Bates
Both were killed when their helicopter monitoring events in Charlottesville crashed

Grateful remembrance

The Rotunda at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, founded by Thomas Jefferson as the world's first secular university.  Jefferson designed its campus including this building which is its centerpiece.  In earlier universities, the centerpiece of the campus was the chapel.  This building, modeled on the Roman Pantheon, was a library.

"I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that His justice cannot sleep forever."
-- Thomas Jefferson, a man as deeply conflicted as the country he dreamed up; a champion of Liberty and a slave owner.
