TheGreatCompromise

Creating awareness around modern slavery and advocating for the most vulnerable minority - the individual - by promoting the idea that the best way to protect one's human rights is to secure those human rights for everyone.

This was a great landmark  family owned restaurant called O’brady’s in Battleground, WA not too far from my home.  They recently closed as a result of eminent domain.  The sign reads: “FIFTH AMENDMENT to the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ‘NO PERSON SHALL BE…DEPRIVED OF LIFE, LIBERTY, OR PROPERTY, WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW; NOR SHALL PRIVATE PROPERTY BE TAKEN FOR PUBLIC USE, WITHOUT JUST COMPENSATION.”  The Washington State Department of Transportation forced out the owner and paid her only a fraction of the property’s value in order to widen the road.  It wasn’t enough money for them to be able to move the business elsewhere.  The most recent owner Susie Brady, whose parents purchased the business in 1972, had been running it for 14 years.  My son loved their hamburgers.
