Grassroots movement alive and well in New Hampshire

To the Editor:

Grassroots are back – our Founding Fathers created a dream.

The dream is a country where hard work, dedication to family, dedication to a country means something special. Our Founding Fathers created a dream – more than 200 years ago before any preconceived notion could have formed about the importance of this dream.

Preconceived convictions that society must govern itself, that leadership should not be monarchs by birth. That leadership voted into office by the people, represents true leadership in a self-governed society.

The people who select their leaders to represent them, to represent the desires of society to grow, learn and be self-satisfied
with the world around it. Not reaching complacency, but establishing a rewarding life in a nation’s domain. These selected leaders become the left and right arm of those who put them in office. We the People, our nation’s descendants of the Founding Fathers, in the truest sense, a nation of people still creating the American dream. We are witnessing these dreams at the speed of Twitter and Facebook in real-time; the first modern emergence is the tea party. The grassroots movement was born here in New England in the 1700s.

Returning to the lowest common denominator our passionate grassroots will continue to occur naturally. The citizens of New Hampshire are passionate people. Revitalization of the grassroots movement is simply the tip of the iceberg of change, proof that the Founding Father’s dreams are still alive and kicking!

Please share your modern-day grassroots stories – I would love to read them all.
