Connecting the Past and the Present

Susan B. Anthony's tombstone is covered with "I Voted" stickers from women on pilgrimage there.  Notice also the stones at the base.  That's a Jewish custom, a wish for God to remember the departed, inspired by shepherds who would place stones in a pouch to count their sheep.  She helped pave the path on which we walk.
