I was all set to post a picture of the John Adams statue today until I stopped by the constuction site of the new Quincy high school wing and saw this iron worker. As he was erecting the steel I-beams, 50 feet off the ground, I saw him stop to unsnag our country's flag from the block and tackle that hoisted the I-beams. I was touched by this show of respect while working and thought here's a man who doesn't take anything for granted. What an unexpected show of patriotism.
Happy Birthday to our country this 4th of July!
