To Effect Their Safety and Happiness
let the safety of the people
be the supreme law
I found these ancient words from Cicero, etched onto the side of a building in Charlotte, NC last weekend.
Driving around looking for the “good” fried chicken, I stopped and said to my friend, “I bet someone’s Big Mama really said that.”
You know, Cicero’s Big Mama probably said these very words right as she snapped off a bunch of grapes, handing him his bowl of porridge.
We will never really know. But these words are timelessly true. Let’s hope that they are taken to heart, read and put into action.
