Crew of roofers arrived before light (around 6:45am) this morning, still working at 5pm. Last night they worked until 8:15, when it was too dark to use the nail gun. The real "fathers" (and mothers) of this country were not the planters and aristocrats. It was working-class men and women, mostly from elsewhere, who built this country, fought its wars, and still fight everyday to realize the dream. On the 50th anniversary + one: "Tell 'em about your dream, Martin."
