First Line Friday: Magna Carta Edition
Happy First Line Friday! It is also my first Friday of freedom, as school and teacher meetings/work days are also DUNZO. I am looking forward to making more progress on my own writing projects, but even more so to having a lot of awesome time with my baby girl. We have very busy summers filled with camps and museums and of course trips to the library.
This week's line is from a book I really like, by an author you may have seen me mention once or twice.
If you are either unsure what Magna Carta is or why it actually matters, definitely give this one a read. You might be surprised that what you thought you knew about this document is not entirely accurate. Jones does a fantastic job explaining the true meaning of it; you won't be disappointed.
"Eight hundred years after it was first granted beneath the trees of Runnymeade, by the fertile banks of the river Thames, the Magna Carta is more famous than ever. This is strange."
Just why it is strange is something you will have to find out for yourself!
Let me know what you think of this line, and/or leave a line of your own. Then, visit my fellow First-Liners to see what they have this week.
