My ancestors arrived on these shores in 1690. My Great Grandfather, 5 generations back, fought for this country’s independence. He almost died in the cold of Valley Forge. Was on sick leave and didn’t get paid for a couple of months. I am so proud to be American and I’m grateful that Thomas Gresham, my relative, picked the right side. That he was a rebel. I sincerely hope that if I had to make a choice to fight and perhaps die for what I think is right, I would follow in the footsteps of Thomas.
Thanks to all who have sacrified their lives in the name of fighting oppression, from whatever source. I admire that.
DON”T TREAD ON ME!
