Noah. And he goes back, to, well, the beginning.
But also, that is just on one side, on the other, I go back to "Lucy".
Now, as a Son of the Mayflower, do we have to address you as Sir, or something???
I think you are right about the Sea Change, but, before it settles down, there will be blood in the streets. The long hot summer has just begun.

I think it will be akin to the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
And there will be consequences for business... We're already seeing them...
I'm still figuring out what the consequences will be...
An example of this is Netflix. They're moving about $100 million dollars to black-owned banks.
Another example of this is the Mississippi governor signing to remove the Confederate flag from its state flag. (Many argue that the Confederate flag is historically a symbol of treason against the United States... though for some in the past, they just saw it as a sign of being proud of being a southerner...)
There will be more consequences. You gotta know about them to be on the "winning" side of this big sea change...
Hope to say more about this in future! (Crying-newborn baby and time-permitting!)
P.S. Because of my new daughter, I've been looking more into my ancestry. I just recently found out, I'm descended from a few who came across from Europe on the Mayflower (according to records at Geni.com). I'm a descendant of William White
, his wife Susanna, and their son Resolved, who was about 5 years old when he got on the Mayflower... Resolved White
is my 10th great grandfather. I also have other ancestors who came across during the Puritan migration
, a few decades later...
