In Boston last week, a Liberty Pole was raised.
Once upon a time that was a VERY common occurrence. It had deep symbolism to the Revolutionary Generation. Along with other symbols, it pointed to their ideas for what exactly they were willing to pledge their lives, their treasures, and their sacred honor.
Through the years the symbols have been forgotten even as they remain in our midst and our everyday lives. The words they represented have been slurred until we no longer recognize their true meaning.
The raising of a Liberty pole last week in Boston reminds us that those ideas are not dead. They can be restored…
