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.....

Duty to Heaven and Country

"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time [as this] through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty as treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings." Patrick Henry (1775)

Henry's words are wise counsel.  We have a duty, even when we are reluctant, even at great personal risk, to share our opinions on important matters.   Our liberty, our country, and our Creator, deserve it.
