A message that too often gets lost out of fear

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Ben Franklin

This message should be spread across America, from the Pacific to the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes.

Thanks for visiting, and helping promote, the Soup to Nuts Progressive Dinner Blog Carnival. I appreciated what I hope will be the first of your comments on my posts.

Have you had a look at my photography site, A Photographer's Eye? We'll be rebuilding it soon, keep the best of it and fixing the rest.

What do you say to exchanging some links. Shoot me over an email, link in my profile.

Cheers!

You're right. Leave it to Ben. I was hanging with him on Sunday morning and got a few pictures. I'll post them Sunday with this thought and a link back. God bless!

Though Thomas Jefferson is my favorite historical figure, Ben Franklin was perhaps the only man more diverse and interesting then him. Plus, his quotes are often so simple and tend to cut straight to the core of the issue.

Wow, it's like the man knew what was gonna happen. Smart people often give that impression with their words.
