Thomas Paine on Trouble

I retweeted this comment on twitter earlier from @mimimayesTN: I’m so glad my mother and WWII vet father passed away before this country started to come apart – they would be horrified.

That sparked a little exchange from a few followers who echoed that sentiment as there parents were from that generation as well.

This in turn reminded me of these famous words of freedom:

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” ~ Thomas Payne
