Below, we are all together, along with the principal of Divine Redeemer Catholic School. Dagny's English teacher couldn't make it, but we are so thankful she pushes the children to do their best. It's no easy task.
Afterwards we got a tour of the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon. I don't know whether you can really see the Roman groin arch, but it is amazing to see bricks from that period. This structure has withstood earthquakes, hurricanes, and gunfire, nad whatnot. In 1965, there were some excavations and they discovered the original seawall that was built in the 1600s.
In this dungeon pirates were held until they were hanged by the marsh. Later, the dungeon held the patriots before they were executed by the British. Sometimes I wonder whether I would have the courage to die for what I believe. I hope so, but Lord, don't put me to the test.
