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.....

The Time Has Come to Do What Is Right

"On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' And Vanity comes alone and asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But Conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position, that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because his conscience tells him it is right." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today Martin Luther King, Jr.'s words still resonate strongly. Too often it seems our political class listens to the siren calls of Cowardice, Expediency, and Vanity.  But it is only Conscience that will save us.
