One of the interesting things about living in Massachusetts- you are surrounded by remembrances of the past. I worship in a white steepled church established
in 1742 and built on land donated for that purpose by John Hancock. Walking the Freedom trail in Boston, visiting Old North Church, or the battlefields of Lexington and Concord gives you a real sense of the history of the US. Today I will be out at Old Sturbridge Village for a picnic and the public reading of the Declaration of Independence, following a common 4th of July practice of the 1830s.
Before you head out for your BBQ- reread the Declaration- it is a stirring and revolutionary document.
And a Happy Fourth of July to you as well.
"The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations," starts the list of how not to lead the people. Every leader of government, large or small, should be aware of the markers that identify poor or corrupt leadership. And yes the people will replace those leaders.
