    John, I very much enjoyed your first piece. It is thought-provoking. Here are some thoughts that your writing provoked for me. You couldn’t have picked a better person to model your point than John Adams. In the instance you cite, as in many others, John Adams was not afraid to “speak truth to power,” a trait which I believe is necessary in the pursuit of “Truth to Freedom.” He was prepared to sacrifice his life, his fortune and his sacred honor for his beliefs. Adams and the other founding fathers were men who used their God-given agency “to act for themselves and not to be acted upon.” Finally I thought of the line attributed to Sir Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons, who said with reference to King Henry VIII, “I die his Majesty’s good servant, but God’s first.” This was a bold declaration in his last breath that man’s inalienable rights come from God not the king. I look forward to your future pieces.
