On this date in history, in 1774, the first continental congress assembled in Philadelphia. Just 245 years ago! How far we have come in such a short period of time! I sometimes wonder what our founding father’s would think if they could see us now? Besides being amazed by all our modern technology; some of our everyday things would probably drive them nuts. How much of what we do everyday really affects us in the long term? Kind of makes you wonder where we are headed?
