"Marinate Your Head"

I just finished watching the HBO mini-series "John Adams" and I could not help but be struck by what an incredible leader, statesman, president and husband John Adams truely was. His skills as an orator moved men to action and guided a country. In addition to Adams, David McCullough's book gives the reader an accurate and factual look at all of the men who crafted the constitution and built the framework of our nation. If you have a passion for history as I do, you will enjoy this story while finding it utterly captivating. To write about the life story of John Adams, McCullough said that he had to literally "marinate his head" in all of the facets of this great man. Maybe we all need to marinate our heads in our own history.
