Happy Patriots' Day!!!

Today is Patriots' Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts -- celebrating the Battle of Lexington and Concord in 1775. I was, and still am, a big Revolutionary War history buff, and in high school and college I played fife with the Pawtuxet Rangers, Rhode Island Militia, pictured here. Not coincidentally, today's the running of the Boston Marathon. We had some visiting runners at church last night, it's beautiful today, if a bit warm, so I hope everyone has a good race and a relaxing, educational Patriots' Day.

God save the Commonwealth, and God save Rhode Island!
