On the street in Williamsburg I was fortunate to run into Thomas Jefferson. He was enjoying the bright sunny day to and watching the people go by as he sat on a bench on the street! He showed me a draft he had of the Declaration of Independence.
We talked about his visions for the future of the country and sacrifices so many had made and would make. Before he left me he invited me to stop by Monticello, his home in Charlottesville VA When I was next in the neighborhood!
Williamsburg is a living history of the early formative days of our country and I would urge anybody that values the freedom and liberty we enjoy to visit it.
Always at home, no matter where we are!!
