Thomas More

In 1536 Thomas More was beheaded for not swearing allegiance to King Henry VII who appointed himself head of the Church of England so he could divorce his wife. Thomas, a lawyer l/philosopher and renaissance humanist refused to go against his beliefs and was thrown in the infamous Tower of London. His work inspiring last words give pause to all that read them 500 years later. “When statesmen forsake their own private consciences for the sake of their public duties, they lead their country by a short route to chaos”.

Valor is in you. Set it free.
