Happy Birthday, Robert Burns Celebration Event!

It would be difficult to find anyone in any culture who has not heard or sung the heart warming song Auld Lang Syne to bring in the New Year, ‘for old times sake.’  While many recognize that it is associated with the National Poet of Scotland, Robert Burns, fewer know the role that ‘Rabbie’ played historically during the time of the American Revolution.

English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, in his essay, “A Defense of Poetry” established  that, in fact, it is the poets, who are the unacknowledged legislators of the world. In a moment as tumultuous as our present time, it is ever more important that we understand and develop in ourselves that poetic power capable of changing the course of human history for the better. 

On Sunday, January 24th at 6:00 pm, we will celebrate the immortal life of Robert Burns through his own works and those of others; to help demonstrate that power of poetry and culture in strengthening the human spirit, to not only face adversity, but to overcome it with a greater good.
Burns is already celebrated world-wide as Scotland's national poet. We plan to demonstrate how Burns fulfilled the great German poet, Friedrich Schiller's demand, that a poet be both a patriot and citizen of the world. 
Please join us for an evening of song, poetry, and history, to advance the cause and the joy of true human freedom.
The event is free. Please let your friends know, and RSVP to get the link.
