Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed The Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
 They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
 What kind of men were they?
 Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.  
 Eleven were merchants.
 Nine were farmers and large plantation owners... men of means...well educated...  but
 they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured
 Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
 Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.
 He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding.  His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
 Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
 At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British general, Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters.  He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.
 Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
 John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she lay dying.  Their 13 children fled for their lives.  His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste.
 For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, please take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday to remember and silently thank these patriots.
 It's not much to ask, considering the price they paid.

All Shook Up   June 3 - June 26, 2011

It’s the summer of 1955, in a small Midwest town, when a young girl with big dreams falls for a motorcycle-riding stud who charges into town, and suddenly the laws of attraction are turned on their head. All Shook Up is built around the songs made famous by the one-and-only Elvis Presley.  Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Hound Dog, It’s Now or Never, Don’t Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock, and many others, are the iconic hits that create the perfect backdrop for finding love in the unlikeliest of places.

Using a special version of Chutes and Ladders to demonstrate her point, Sister tells us where we¹ve gone wrong, and no one is excused from her firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty because we are guilty."
