April 29, 2012 - Dr. Henry Williams Salute to President Monroe Given on April 28, 2012

  

Dr. Henry Williams III, PHD

A SALUTE TO PRESIDENT MONROE ON THE OCCASION OF HIS BIRTHDAY April 28, 2012

             “In this great nation there is but one order, that of the people, whose power, by a peculiarly happy improvement of the representative principle, is transferred from them, without impairing in the slightest degree their sovereignty, to bodies of their own creation, and to persons elected by themselves, in full extent necessary for the purposes of free, enlightened, and efficient government.”

 These eloquent and powerful words were spoken by our fifth President, James Monroe.  How prescient and eternal his message, a concept which continues to struggle for recognition in our time, a concept which tries man’s inclination to abuse power.  President Monroe was born on April 28th, 1758 to Spence Monroe and Elizabeth Jones in Westmorland County, one of five, in part of what became the First District of the Commonwealth of Virginia 254 years ago.
