Travel back with me to the Middle Ages and imagine that you are a serf out working in the fields. Suddenly, a knight in shining armor rides up to you and informs you that your presence is requested by the king and escorts you to the royal palace. Would you be trembling in fear? Would your knees start shaking and your hands grow clammy with nerves as you approach the throne room of the most powerful person in the land? Would you be wondering why the King desires to see you? Would you wonder if you were in trouble or had done something wrong?
