Wow. Michael Rock Is A “Notable Person” From His Hometown
I have a dear friend visiting who’s last name is Tewksbury, the same as the Massachusetts town where our own Michael Rock grew up. So when we went to Wikipedia to find out where the name of the town came from, something jumped of the page and hit me in the face. Under the “Notable Residents” section, there was the name of Michael Rock. There he is, sharing the short list with the last surviving Civil War general, the tutor and companion of Helen Keller, and a hero from the Revolutionary War. Immediately I checked my Wikipedia for my hometown in upstate New York, and nothing. I am not a notable person from my home town. Oh well. Some people have what it takes, the rest of us don’t. Congratulations Michael Rock, I think you deserve a street in Tewksbury to bear your name as well.
