Founders' Daily Quote: 31 July 2008

"I believe a time will come when an opportunity will be offered to abolish this lamentable evil. Everything we do is to improve it, if it happens in our day; if not, let us transmit to our descendants, together with our slaves, a pity for their unhappy lot and an abhorrence of slavery."

--Patrick Henry (letter to Robert Pleasants, 18 January 1773); Reference: The Spirit of 'Seventy-Six, Henry Commager and Richard Morris, 402.

I have always Patrick Henry, but now I like him even more! AMEN.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
