the power to change...

"When you think of our founding fathers in America, whom do you remember. Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Franklin, Paine. Only one of the men listed there actually served in the Continental Army.

"All of them wrote, and gave speeches. They persuaded their neighbors, and wrote letters to newspapers. Some of them published their own newspapers. It is interesting that the men we revere as the founders of our country were mostly not those who fought, but those who wrote. The pen is mightier than the sword."

Just wanted to preserve those words somewhere, because they're beautiful.
