52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 14 — Winter

This week The Girl That Dreams Awake has challenged us to post a photo using the theme of Winter. I took this photo of the Benjamin Franklin statue in front of Boston’s Old City Hall in 2002.

This may well turn out to be “the winter of our discontent” for many of the citizens here in the United States. Tomorrow’s election results will elate some and exasperate others. I wonder what words of wisdom Ben would offer to us these days?

    .Allan, I like the photo a lot. During the time of the Founding Fathers, there was plenty of contention, such as how much power to give the federal government vs. the state government, and it wasn’t all pleasant. Friendships were sometimes severed, but the country was born, a unique experiment in liberty. I hope that continues to be the case. It saddens me that during the weeks and months prior to this election, I’ve lost respect for friends and acquaintance, not for their beliefs, but for the way they’ve presented these beliefs and the way they and their friends have disagreed with and demeaned those with different views. Those are the things that can make healing difficult. I pray that we can work through them. Good thing we don’t fight duels now!! 🙂

      I’m with you, Janet. It is possible disagree without getting personal about it, but that has not been the norm this year.

      Wednesday is going to be an interesting one.
