Renewing the American Spirit
Patriot Week begins on 9/11 and ends on 9/17 (the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution (Constitution Day)) and renews America’s spirit by celebrating the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history. Many of current holidays have become overly commercialized or have lost their deeper meaning. We need to invigorate our appreciation and understanding of America’s spirit. This blog is dedicated to keeping the spirit of Patriot Week - and America - alive all year long.....

Long Live King James I
Yesterday, in 1606, King James I issued a charter to the London Company for it to establish colonies in the New World. Little did he reckon the fruits that charter would yield - a violent revolution, founded on the First Principles of liberty - leading to the splintering of Great Britain, as well as the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Those of us basking in liberty today owe no small measure of gratitude to the English monarch of centuries ago.
