Still Afloat…Just Barely

After several years of negotiating, discussing, expounding, and just plain yelling over each other, the members of the Continental Congress finally passed a resolution on Independence to, in Jefferson’s words, “… place before mankind the common sense of the subject in terms so plain and firm as to command their assent.”

Today, 241 years later, the ship of State that set sail in those turbulent years, is hitting choppy waters yet again. It behooves us to negotiate, discuss, expound and, if necessary, Twitter over one another, to keep the vessel afloat and on course.

Happy Independence Day!
