During a recent babysitting trip to Massachusetts, I had the opportunity to walk “The Freedom Trail.” This walk is 2.5 miles long beginning at Boston Commons and ending at Bunker Hill. It is the Cradle of Liberty … the birthplace of American Independence. It was awesome.
Although the history of the United States is relatively recent, what our forefathers risked to gain our freedom humbles me. These people risked their livelihoods, their families, and their lives for an idea.
I stood crying in the graveyard where John Adams and Paul Revere are buried, thanking them silently.
