Lewis & Clark: The Best Bromance In U.S History


So it's winter! And there is snow, and much has happened since my last post. It's 2013, and The Hobbit came out (I loved it, but truthfully, I was expecting more from Jackson), Obama won the 2012 election, and I'm now in the 8th grade! Christmas and New Year's was fun (got a lot of goodies) and I spent great time with my family. What I've liked most about 8th grade has definitely been History. It's very fun, and I find America's past such an amazing story of greed, war, and hatred. Guess it hasn't changed so much. But there is one story of  love in U.S history that could fill anybody's heart. And that is the bromance between Lewis and Clark. What is a bromance you ask? Defined by Urban Dictionary, a "bromance" is "The intense love shared between heterosexual males. A form of male bonding and usually invisible to the naked eye. This bond is normally only shared between two males that have a deeper understanding of each other, in a way no woman could ever realize. "   If you didn't already know,  Lewis and Clark were two men assigned to explore the whole west of the United States after the recent Louisana Purchase that Jefferson bought from Napoleon. Anyways, these two (straight) guys bonded in many ways throughout their two year expedition. They never disagreed on an important decision, and York (Clark's slave and companion) stated that he never saw them argue. They were amazingly good friends, and despite their differences, they bonded like PB and J. And the most sweet part about the whole story is that after Lewis committed suicide, Clark named his son Meriwether Lewis Clark. 

I hope your not stuck with the flu!
See you,
