I posted last week on having a positive outlook at our current world so now, for the flip side. I have often wondered if we as a people really appreciate what our founders went through.
In 1776 our forefathers and sisters had to come to grips with actually taking a stand, possibly shooting their neighbors, culling the loyalists and shoring up their circles of trust. This stand was a choice between life and death for not only themselves but for their families as well. The British Crown did not become the masters of an Empire Upon Which the Sun Never Set by being flexible, accommodating and accepting and executing without question anything other than the dictates of their monarchy.
Fast forward to now and the sun indeed sets on the remnants of that empire (as it does of colonial Spain).
