You have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch live entertainment like this.
We were out the door by 5:00 in the blessed AM to make it to the re-enactment of the shot heard 'round the world and the Battle at Lexington on this, Patriots Day. Then back to our friend's house for breakfast.
Even though the re-enactment was much smaller and much, much safer than the actual event I was struck by the courage of our few men that fought for all the things we too often take for granted. The Americans didn't fare so well in this particular battle and I hope that my behavior as a citizen will always uphold and protect the same ideals those men gave their lives for.
