Hi everyone! I’m sorry my post is late today, had some appointments this morning. How’s everyone’s Friday going?
Have you ever heard the song, “Yankee Doodle“? It’s a funny sounding song that has it’s origins sometime during the early parts of colonial American history. The tune for this song frequently get’s stuck in my head and I’ll find myself sometimes whistling it, and I’m sure our founding fathers probably wouldn’t care for that.
I often wonder if our founding fathers could talk to us now, what would they say about the state of things today? What would George Washington tell the newest Presidential candidates about running a country? (Honestly, I’m often curious if they are watching from above and shaking their heads at us.) Do you think that Benjamin Franklin would have gotten along with Steve Jobs? It would make an interesting lunch, I think.
One of my favorite periods in history is the beginning of our nation. I loved studying Colonial America because I think it was a brave time, where a lot of different choice could have made a huge impact on our reality today. If I could use Bill and Ted’s time machine, I would head back to watch the Continental Congress and hopefully get a chance to speak to people like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. (My geek side is showing here.)
If you could borrow the time machine, what time in history would you visit? Who would you like to talk to?
