Happy 300th Birthday Benjamin Franklin !

Benjamin Franklin Birthday

Happy Birthday!

I wonder what Mr. Franklin would have thought of the times we live in? I often wonder why so many frown on looking back. History is important. Not to be forgotten. And yet, some say "don't live in the past." Why, I wonder do they toss the past away so easily? Perhaps they have not the simple wisdom of any domesticated dog. The past, be it the history of our own United States, or your own years on Earth, are to be learned from. To be cherished. To reflect upon.

Ah yes, maybe those who dismiss history without a second thought are in fact, "doomed to repeat it" in a "Groundhog Day" sort of way. :-)

Bark at you later,
J the dog blogging dog :-P
