What do we do when a country is being divided? When "enemies" are skewing events, blowing things out of perspective, and demonizing us? When we are being labeled as "dangerous" and "a threat"? Well, lets take a peek into a similar situation back in 1768, and see how a Boston town meeting wrote to their London agent and explained events that had been used to stoke division. Maybe there is something for us today.
