So, an awareness of history: what it has to give. why we need it, H.A.! I have at least ten good reasons. I'll list them here tomorrow. For now, I only note what I did long, long ago, it seems, at the beginning of this day, that this day commemorates a most thrilling, frightening, and fateful intersection of time, space, and power. Courage, blood, patriotism. Time: Early the morning of April 19th, 1775. Place: Lexington, Massachusetts.
What a moment! And think how much was at stake.
