7. Thank you!

I surely appreciate your post. I love those connections!

Earlier in the week, at a school board meeting, we were discussing the issue of federal financial aid. Should Romney-Ryan gain office, public schools will be hurt, far beyond what an unsuspecting public is aware of.

That can be discouraging.

But I found myself thinking about how the first US Senator to advocate federal support for public schools had been raised in the tiny hamlet that Ilive near. His first job -- when he was a teenager -- was at a cloth & carding factory, that was located at the waterfalls on the farm that I now inhabit. In fact, the woman he would marry was of a family that lived in this house.

Democracy is a process, with both important and fascinating roots to the past.
