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.....

Oakland County Pays Tribute to Patriot Week Co-Creators
Last night, the Oakland County Commission paid tribute to my daughter Leah (and me) for establishing Patriot Week. It was a very humbling event, spearheaded by Commissioner David Potts, and unanimously supported by the entire commission. The commissioners have been extraordinarily supportive of the effort in many ways, and we very much appreciate their continued bi-partisan support. Thanks so very much!
