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.....

Educate for Liberty or Lose It!

"The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next."  Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln's admonition still rings true today.  Unfortunately, over the course of the last couple of generations, we have been denigrating American history and civics.  We have lost sight of not only facts and figures, but our foundational history.

No wonder our students are struggling to understand the basic precepts of our Constitution, and our politicians fail to respect it.  

Lincoln warned that our greatest threat was suicide - the end of country as a free people because we destroyed it from within. 

We need to combat this now before its too late.  One step is Patriot Week - check it out at  Also, learn about our founding First Principles and how to keep them alive at
