Freedom for All
York Adams Council
When our forebearers came to America, they came with a dream and a will. A dream that life could be better under the flag of freedom and a will to form a nation in which freedom was a cornerstone. That same ideal still lives today and it is that very ideal that gives us the advancements we enjoy in every facet of our lives—including technology.
If you look at the history of the computer, you see that every major advancement that has been made in bringing us the computer and computer networks we use today has come from the ingenuity that thrives in a free land—a land that was founded on a dream of freedom for all and a will to make it happen. Let's join together in renewing our allegiance to our flag and the great nation that it represents.
