Principles of Freedom

Words for parents to ponder this Independence Day from one of our Founding Fathers...

"Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom."
~ John Adams

"It should be your care, therefore, and mine,
to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage;
to accelerated and animate their industry and activity;
to excite in them a habitual contempt of meanness,
abhorrence of injustince and inhumanity,
and an ambition to excel in every capacity, facutly, and virtue.
If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives."
~ John Adams

Happy Independence Day!
