Libraries Are So Important To Our Evolving Society
Is it possible to know the truth of an American Historical "legend", and set the record straight (for all time)? All historical records are someone’s best attempt to shed light and truth on events of the past.

Have you ever thrown away an item only to discover that you really could have reused it for another purpose? We all know the old saying, "One man's junk is another man's treasure."

Henry Rex Tudor - King - Defender of the Faith - Serial Spouse. Henry VIII is famous (or infamous) for a legacy, including the establishment of the Church of England and a litany of fractured marital vows. I just visited my daughter in Washington, DC, and because we are nerds, we visited the Folger Shakespeare Library where they are celebrating the 500 year anniversary of Henry’s ascension to the throne. The library and museum is one of those quiet little gems that ensorcells you with an abundance of beautiful architecture and breathtaking artifacts.
Witches Sabbath, the Devil, and hints of rebellion make Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story Young Goodman Brown a Halloween must-read. The story takes place in Salem with a community of god-fearing Puritans during the time of the infamous Salem witch trials.
