Re-birthing America

Dear Friends, the boy in the image above was reading the Declaration of Independence emblazoned on the wall of the Jefferson Memorial when I visited there in October 2007.  He represents our future.

The folks in the following video taken at Colonial Williamsburg represent our past as they reenact how our country was born.  Our fore fathers and mothers pledged their “lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor” in order to birth America.  Tomorrow we’ll consider how severely that cost was for many of them and their families.

Now consider what you and I can and must do in order to ensure the re-birthing of America in its third century.
