      • James Otis: No man is ever so sick, that he cannot rise up and fight for his people.

      • Mary: (reading a letter) 1783 Military intelligence from the French capital reports peace negoiations are continuing at an urgent pace that the British grant full and complete independence to the colonies in America.
        James Otis: Leave the windows open.
        Mary: It's starting to rain.
        James Otis: I know, but watching the storm gather it's force and clouds hunching up in the horizon like sails met with wind and the lightning in the distance coming closer. Remember what I said to you once long ago about the lightning.
        Mary: Yes. It makes me shiver.
        James Otis: Why does it make you shiver? What is lightning but a bond of pyre binding heaven to earth.
        Mary: It always frightened me.
        James Otis: It shouldn't.
        Mary: Okay if the rain should come in will you close the window?
        James Otis: I will, Mary.
        Mary: Be sure.
        James Otis: I promise. (as Mary walks away James is struck by a bolt of lightning).
