Mayflower A Cargo Carrier

          “Times have changed
          And we've often rewound the clock
          Since the Puritans got a shock
          When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
          If today, any shock they should try to stem
          'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock
          Plymouth Rock would land on them.”

  In 1934 Cole Porter wrote those lyrics for the song “Anything Goes”
  Over Labor Day 2022, TSA says it screened nearly 11.1 million people, or 3% percent more as compared to 2019.
  TSA also said that it screened more people on four of the five day holiday above pre-pandemic levels.
  This week as air movements in Europe will reach 30,000 plus a day or about 87% of 2019 levels according to European data, stop for a moment to recall that 402 years ago a lonely 100-foot cargo ship that was used to transport wine and farm goods was converted to a passenger carrier.
  The ship called Mayflower included a tough seasoned captain and crew, that sailed out from Plymouth, England on September 6, 1620 with 41 people seeking religious freedom (out of a manifest of 102) arriving at Cape Cod on November 11 conquering the Atlantic Ocean. These people developed the single self-governing community of Plymouth, Massachusetts.
  The English Magna Carta, written more than 400 years before the Mayflower Compact, (November 21,1620) established the principle of the rule of law. The Compact extended the idea to law made by the people, the heart of democracy.
From its tenuous beginning in Plymouth, self-government took hold and evolved in Colonial America.
  The powerful idea born on the Mayflower, made a significant contribution to the creation of a new democratic nation.
  Nice to think that the adaptive reuse of a cargo carrier had a hand in changing the world for the better, forever.
