A snippet of a famous speech given on this day in 1775, so very apt for these days:
“Gentlemen may cry peace, peace – but there is no peace. The war is actually begun.
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me
liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry, of course.
This is my kids' copywork for the day.
