When you walk the Freedom Trail in Boston you walk around busy downtown Boston. You’ll stop at ancient burying grounds that are just inches from the busy sidewalks.
Yesterday, I stopped by Kings Chapel burying grounds, the final resting place of many early colonists. Mary Chilton, the first woman to step off the Mayflower, is buried here for example.
Anyway, I strolled by these stone markers and thought my usual “deep” thoughts.
I can never quite shake the odd feeling that these early settlers from the 1600′s and participants in our American Revolution are now inches away from the land of flip flops.
But, hey, maybe it’s just me.
