I'm afraid I can't post in some of the other forums since I'm new so I figured that I'd share here.  I got a chance a little over a week ago to start at the Old North Bridge in Concord and retrace things as far as Lexington.  I had a great time and learned a lot.  I took a picture of the Old North Bridge while I was there and was very annoyed that I couldn't get a shot of the bridge without people on it until I realized...

Jesse,


I just wanted to chime in and say congratz!  Visiting Lexington and Concord is a wonderful experience for someone who understands the history... just standing there gave me chills when I visited.

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery
