Remember Remember the 5th of November…

5 Nov

In May I co-hosted a quotography challenge, and just happened to get a quote from the famous poem about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot.  Today seems like a great day to re-share the image. =)

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Thanks to the movie V for Vendetta, many people associate the Gunpowder Plot with govermental oppression, though in reality the issue had more depth, also touching on religious persecution and an era of civil unrest.  (Read a bit more about that here, and how I honored them with this image.) In America, in particular, people are charged about tomorrow…election day…and interpretations of the meaning of the quote are flying around the Interwebs fast and furious. haha

No mater how you choose to take the quote, one thing can not be denied…Guy Fawkes and his crew believed in action for change.  If you live in the US, do him a favor tomorrow?  Go out and take meaningful action…VOTE! 🙂
