I wonder if Captain Thomas ever thought that someone two hundred years later would take time to visit his gravesite.
He rests in peace at Quaker Ridge Cemetery. This graveyard is located on what is known as the Great Trail.
It was so long ago. Yet a record remains. These men lived during a period when this country was just being birthed. Ordinary souls following their dreams. Did they realize the part they were playing in history?
Perhaps in some small way we will all impact the tomorrows of the generations that will follow.
Our lives may seem unimportant now. Yet our decisions and actions could make a difference for those who will live in the future.
