Hey! I think that ben franklin was an awesome guy. I knew him well. just kidding! Haha. anyways what he did was awesome for the world and if he hadn't of did it, we would be sitting here with no computers, no television, and even worse, no food. we probaly wouldn't be in a building because you need power to build things. anywyas, yeah, that is what i think about him!

I loved the web site!

He was one good guy and he was one of the men that we should have a day that we reseat.
Seth Timmerman, the kite was a good idea [10-24-2006]
I think that Ben and the men of his day would be shocked, amazed, and disheartened by the state of our country today. While we have been asleep we have gone from the land of the free fighting for the freedom of those who have yet to taste it, to the land of the oppressed at home sending our brave soldiers’ to die in foreign lands to spread democracy that we might feel more safe. We have proven Ben’s words. We deserve neither our essential liberties nor safety. All we are doing is allowing those we fear to control us through our own fears. We need to change our slogan from “The Land of the Free” to “The Land of the Fearfully Oppressed.”

I have enjoyed reading about Ben Franklin. I had to do a project on someone famous and I chose him because I thought he had done so much with so little education. Now, in this time education cannot be short-changed by any one. We need our education and most of all God. Thank you for your information. There was enough information to do my entire project with pictures and all. God gave him all the knowledge he needed to become successful. I think he had the gift from God to do all these things to help the world. Thank you-Kaylne
Kaylne McDowell, 10 years of age-Glen Heights, Texas [10-17-2006]
i think he is a great inventor and he is excellent
TIFFFANY STOKES [10-17-2006]
it is ok but needs to add more games so every one can play to injoy it.
vicente santana, 12 yancyvill [10-16-2006]
i think that ben franklin was a very cool and interesting person he invented a lot and thought of a lot of inventions and was just a wonderful,caring,and a thoughtful person
While still greatly celebrated, I still think he was and is under appreciated. His legacy is taught to us at a young age in school, so later on we assume we know about him because we've been studying him since third grade, but i think this man made so many achievements we should continue to revisit him, along with many others through out our years of learning.
Jennifer Yoder [10-16-2006]
you inspire me
my thought were that he is a very cool man
jennifer, daytona beach fl [10-16-2006]

maria, female [10-05-2006]
Temple's diary was some very exciting reading. I would guess being a part of the Franklin family was exciting, with every family member contributing to our history in some kind of a way. Thank you for allowing me and every other american into the life of such an inspiring family. William from Virginia
I think Mr. Franklin ranks right up there with the Presidents, Kings, and statesmen of his time. He contributed so to the american culture that words cannot say what a great person and agreat american. I may be stretching it a little but I am a fan of one of the great americans who ever lived.

I think that Benjamin Franklin was a great man! lots of people were enspierd by him! I like two sayings from Ben 1 A penny saved is a penny earned 2 Waste not Want not i like those sayings becuase when you save a penny it ia youve earned a penny!And waste not want not if you want it now and youve wasted it then u cant have any more so when you get something dont waste it! Did you know that Ben was beaten once by his brother james when he worked for him in hid printing shop so Ben ran away he did not even say good bye to his parents. so if you want to know more about Ben and meet me just email me and all tell you more about Ben Franklin i hope i can talk to you soon. :) ~Sarah~

Id say Benjamin Franklin is weird, brave, and also extremely smart. Know would want to stand out in the cold, wet, storm practicaly hopeing to see electricity almost kill you. Although he did invent electricity because of that, i do give him credit because we people on earth would be in a world of hurt if there was no t.v. and so for whatt he did, that was, crazy, brave, and pretty smart!
Taylor Spencer, 13 years old, from Andover Kansas, love to paintball! [09-18-2006]

I am saving to take a trip with my husband and my girls to the East coast to visit the original 13 states. I've been to D.C. and want to return so I can teach my girls about our history. I'm 31 and from what I hear and see we are slowly losing our American Heritage and Culture by not sharing it with our children and by allowing so many illegal immigrants infiltrate our country and then have the nerve to "cater" to them...why should we have to post everything in other languages besides English? This is America and the founding language is ENGLISH! If you want to speak Spanish or Chinese, or German then maybe you need to move to those countries. I have no problem with people moving to the United States to make a better living for themselves..but if you do..then make sure that you become a legal citizen, pay your taxes like everyone else, learn the language of the land, and remember this is still One Nation Under GOD! When we start taking God out of the government, schools, court houses, then we start cursing ourselves and this very country.

I have, for many years, been a great admirer of Mr. Franklin and his many texts and observations. However, is there some way of obtaining replica prints of his various dialogues, representing the actual documents?

I was born on the 250th anniversary of Ben's birthday and have always had an interest in him. I once was asked the question: "If you could have lunch with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?" My answer was: Living, Jimmy Carter, Dead, Ben Franklin.
how do you did the sparmet on lighting bult
was watching a soap opera and one of his quotes was used and i liked it and i wanted to know about the man and the electricity
i thought he was very silly to fly a kite in a thunderstorm.

Benjamin Franklin to me was a very intellegent man. He graduated from oxford and edinburgh. He was self-taught and honary doctor of Laws. He lived to be 84 and was a pretty big then in the old days. Ben Franklin wasn't like Button Gwinnett who died at the age of 42. I think Benjamin was a magnificent man and I wish he could've lived longer.

Patrick, Charlotte NC [07-05-2006]
The website is outstanding and I've enjoyed my brief incounter. However, I have a question regarding a quote to which I have always heard attributable to Benjamin Franklin and I would appreciate any information regarding it's origin. I have heard it quoted of Ben Franklin that "the true definition of freedom is the right of an individual to do as he pleases as long as those actions do not infringe on the rights of others to do as they please". I'm not certain this is an accurate and direct quote, but any enlightenment to this matter would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Murray

Ben Franklin has always been my favorite revolutionary war hero. I have pulled from your site several quotes that will be Headlined on the site am currently building. The quotes I grabbed are, They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately. Those who are feared are hated. It's common for Men to give pretended Reasons instead of one real one. Doing an injury puts you below your enemy; revenging one make you but even with him; forgiving it sets you above him. In light of the decline of the American Empire by a few corrupt companies and government officials there is no better time then then now to publish the visions and wisdom of those who created our constitution. It is a good to see the global Empire that America Invisioned and created after WWII colapse, but it is not good to see the decline of an American State that was built upon the greatest assembly of men that the world has yet to see gather for some basic and common goals, Independence, Freedom, Liberty, and the Bill of Rights. Enough said, I just want to say thank you for your web site and the information that it provides. Please keep the site up and running. It is like you described unique and efficient in its content and layout (navigation). Congradulations & Regards, Bruce

Hola senior! My name is Carley Reno. I am a 5th grader at Lewis E. Maire Elementary School in Grosse Pointe Park, MI, 48230. When I read about Benjarmen Franklin in my Social Studies textbook, I was amazed dude! I couldn't believe that one single little guy could be so nice, generous, and SMART! I was really amazed by his inventions and I think that people should write more books about him, because I would love to learn more about him! I really enjoyed hearing about him. That is all I have to say. I hope you like this message. ~Carley Reno Mrs. Bednarczyk's 5th grader Grosse Pointe Park, MI, 48230
