On April 18, 1775, three men rode across the countryside of colonial America to warn the population about the mobilization of the British army. Paul Revere and William Dawes rode to Lexington, Massachusetts, then on to Concord, along with Samuel Prescott. As they rode, they alerted every American they came across to the imminent threat that was coming their way. Many of those who they alerted rode as well, spreading the word even further across the countryside.
This is where we are today. The threats to our American way of life are numerous and coming from so many directions. Some are here and others are still coming. This isn’t to say that we should live in a state of fear or start seeing conspiracies behind every rock. But it does mean that we need to WAKE UP! We need to make ourselves aware of what’s really going on and we need to stand up for what’s right and stand against what’s wrong. There are so many more prolific voices out there, but I believe that every single one counts and I hope mine will as well. This page is about painting a fuller picture of our nation and what’s going on in it; not only the bad things that we must stand against, but also the good that we must applaud and support.
That’s it. I don’t know exactly what this blog will turn into, but if I can help just one American to wake up and make this country just a little better, then I’ll consider this worth any effort I put into it. I’ll hope you’ll enjoy this blog and that, if nothing else, something on it will make you think, no matter whether you end up agreeing with me or not.
