Here’s an excerpt of some facts about people born on June 4, 1963 that I found online.

  1. And here’s a June4 martyrdom that evokes my admiration every year. “Martureô” “I bear witness”. Fighting for human rights long denied to women, Emily Wilding Davison had suffered 10 arrests, conducted 7 hunger strikes – often near to death – and been brutally force-fed 49 times. She’d appealed to King EdwardVII. Paul, on appeal, won Nero’s support, but Emily had failed to stir her Caesar. The 4th of June 1913 was Derby Day.
    The field thundered down the straight, passing the Royal Enclosure. Emily ran onto the track, stood in the path of the King’s galloping horse, and was struck down, fatally injured.
    In hospital, she gave up the ghost on the 8th of June.
    Universal Adult Suffrage, here since Federation, was still denied, for over 15 years in Britain, 20 in the U.S.A., 50 in Switzerland. A moment of meditation, perhaps a prayer, for Emily, who hungered and thirsted for justice, but was not fulfilled.
