Ode to Ben

To the Catholic Sentinel:

Benjamin Franklin (1706-’90) was an extraordinary person. His contributions to the wellbeing of human society are myriad.

Besides his crucial role in the American Revolution, he was influential during the Enlightenment. His achievements spanned many fields of study. His inventions include swim fins, the rocking chair, bifocal lenses, the Franklin stove, and the glass harmonica. His most famous invention was the lightning rod.
