Exploring America’s Independence… from Sea to Shining Sea.

Hopefully you are enjoying a wonderful day celebrating America’s Independence.

Fortunately, this weekend we’ll enjoy a short respite from the continued assault on our nation from those who would prefer we absorb the revisionist history as gospel. No thanks.

There is something so unique about today and most Americans only get a taste of it. Traffic, crowds and the occasional mosquito may be a hassle, but celebrating with fellow patriots in your community is awe-inspiring because we share a common heritage.

One of the most remarkable Independence Day Celebrations I ever experienced was 30 years ago today in 1991. It was a special celebration for me because it was 4 months after returning home from combat in Desert Storm.

Despite the fact that it was raining, the Washington, DC Mall was a muddy mess and the fireworks were questionable, nothing was going to stop me from going.

I simply could not wait to be in the mix with fellow Americans who shared my gratitude for our nation.

As it turns out, I was glad it was still drizzling when the fireworks started and Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” played because my fighter pilot ego couldn’t handle those around me seeing tears streaming down my face.

So much has changed in 30 years. Much like the frog that gets boiled alive in the slowly increasing heat, many citizens are simply accepting what’s happening in our nation as the next phase of America’s destiny.

If we accept that point of view, then we are effectively standing aside and watching our liberties evaporate and society collapse.

What can we do to help Americans understand the truth of our founding and the sacrifices made to protect our freedom?

In 5 years, America will celebrate her 250th birthday. What would happen if, between now and then, families experience America’s heritage in a way that shakes them to their core?

Imagine exploring our American Heritage in such a way that it creates a visceral experience deep within our bones and inspires us to engage the next generation with real truth.

As we approach her 250th birthday, we invite you to join us as we explore this land of ours from sea to shining sea and help young citizens experience America’s destiny as they never have.

In the meantime, whether you are on the DC Mall waiting for the big show, planning a picnic to go with your local fireworks display or watching the Capitol 4th on television with friends who don’t like crowds or bugs, please take a moment to thank God you are an American.

Then say a prayer for those brave men and women who are standing watch today protecting what remains of our freedom… both domestically and overseas.

Happy Birthday America!
