"Puritanism, believing itself quick with the seed of religious liberty, laid, without knowing it, the egg of democracy." James Russell Lowell
After visiting the state of Massachusetts, I came away thinking that if a state ever had a reason to be proud, this is the one. Massachusetts, I discovered, was the first state to make the black man equal, and the first state to admit black children into public schools. For those reasons alone, Massachusetts should feel proud.
It's the state where the Pilgrims first stepped foot; it's the state who had the first Thanksgiving feast; it's a state where the capital [Boston] is considered one of the country's friendliest; it's a state with a rich history, but it's also a state that meets the future head-on; indeed, it's a great place to seek the American future.
Did you know that the Massachusetts Constitution is the oldest governing constitution in the world? It is! It's also the high-tech capital of the East...once again, the past and the future unite.
Although Massachusetts is a small state, its diversity makes it an important state in the USA. It's filled with great people and picturesque places. Noted for its many wonderful educational institutes, and MIT is home to more than forty Nobel Prize Winners!
Five men from Massachusetts became President of the United States, even though not all were residents when elected: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Calvin Coolidge, John F. Kennedy, George H.W. Bush
But probably most important (LOL), Massachusetts is the birthplace of the Tollhouse chocolate-chip cookie and the Fig Newton cookie too!
Massachusetts offers visitors much to do, so much to see, so much to learn. Don't be the one to miss it.
This photo makes me smile. It brings back great memories of our Eastern vacation, including the beautiful beaches and sand dunes of Cape Cod
