Reading: More Abigail

I am really enjoying this audio version of Dearest Friend: The Life of Abigail Adams. What a great story. And what great people the Adams' were. Being a Virginian and all, I have focused more on Jefferson, Madison, and Washington, et al. But this family was amazing.

One of the things I am gleaning is a general idea of the moral climate of the Revolutionary War days. Abigail Adams believed that Liberty and Virtue were inseparably linked. She also believed that a corrupt government could be overcome by a virtuous people. What about us today? We have both a corrupt government, and a corrupt people.

Lord, have mercy.
