Education should be the fundamental right of all people ...This I firmly believe and strive daily to impart on all my students.
John Adams was from Massachusetts and played an integral part in the founding and building of the United States, he was a very irascible man,and I believe because of that,is often overlooked by Americans. Here are some more quotes that I think are as appropriate today as when he spoke them:
"Everything in life should be done with reflection."
“Always stand on principle....even if you stand alone”
This last one I think says it all about our current economic crisis :
"All the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arise, not from want of honor or virtue, but from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation."
Enjoy your holiday and reflect and remember all those who have gone before us and who are currently making the sacrifices necessary to hold on to our freedom.
