Our Heritage

Every man has leaned upon the past. Every liberty we enjoy has been bought at incredible cost. There is not a privilege nor an opportunity that is not the product of other men’s labors.

We drink every day from wells we have not dug; we live by liberties we have not won; we are protected by instituions we have not set up.

No man lives by himself alone. All the past is invested in him.

– Dr. Thomas Gibbs

    Who dug the first well…Adam or Eve? I think it was neither.

    I couldn’t tell you who dug the first well. Not at this time anyway.

    Not at this time means one of two things…you are either a bone digger or expecting to go to heaven and hear a few good stories.

    Cancel that. Heading into the light of day in a couple of hours. Putting my face on. With my morning coffee.
