Close your eyes you can feel the essence of freedom all around you. In 1963 John F. Kennedy as President for the United States sought to reach above problems of diversity, racial tension, and equality among men. He dreamed of a day in the past of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Where men did what was right because it was right. When evil had no boundaries, men stood in defiance for the act of freedom. They had the belief that equality should be for all. The ruler ship of King Arthur…. fable, or truth would lead them to overcome every obstacle that darkness could bring.

There was a round table where all were seated, no one higher than the other in status, all were equal. They were there for service to the King and those of the Kingdom. The purpose was always bigger than the problem.

They would be there to fight injustice, poverty, hunger, giving every man a place to lay his head in peace. The men at the Round Table were strength for the weak. Jackie Kennedy portrayed this of President John F. Kennedy. When he died that spirit of Camelot died with him. We as Americans thought Chivalry was dead that no one cared any longer about the everyday man, woman, and child. Just for a moment…………if you will close your eyes you will see that the spirit of Camelot is back and we have someone who is willing confront the problems so that they will be resolved. King Arthur and and his men were conflict resolutionist. The events that are taking place show us the Knights of the Round Table are taking there seats in Washington and freedom has returned to America, “Camelot is Back”. President Trump and his knights are ready to do battle. But that’s another story………….
