Give Me Liberty...

Yesterday at church, our pastor was talking about Patrick Henry. He said that most people know who he is, but that the younger people had probably never heard of him.

Riley made eye contact with me (she sits one section over from us, with other kids in the youth group) and she winked and nodded.

Of course she knows who Patrick Henry is. I read his "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech out loud to everyone this school year. (Or I tried to... these older speeches are not easy! LOL)

It made me proud that she acknowledged that she did indeed know who Patrick Henry is. I hope that helps her realize just how unique and special is this classical education she is receiving!
