I have been MIA in the last few days... I have been reading: Samuel Adams - Father of the American revolution. I finished the book last night and I loved it.
It probably isn't a book for you if you do not like History. But I thoroughly enjoyed it! I love the light it shed on the events preceding and following the revolution; the internal struggles and battles of ideas.
Most of all, I love that this man did not care about power. He cared about liberty.
He was a deeply religious man.
He believed that he was only an Instrument in God's plan.
My favorite quote of he book is the following:
" He (Samuel) did not believe that the world was on the precipice of a golden age but that each generation had to fight to preserve freedom..."
I pondered on that a while...
The fight for freedom is not over.
Every generation has to fight to preserve their own freedom.
The fight is now OURS...
