~ Wisdom for Wednesday ~

In honor of the upcoming President's Day holiday, I give you the words of 
George Washington:

"If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

"In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude."

"I am sure that never was a people who had more reason to acknowledge a Divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States; and I should be pained to believe that they have forgotten that Agency, that was so often manifested during our Revolution, or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God who is alone able to protect them."
