  • Learning to celebrate the Fourth outside of July

    A recent remark made by a co-worker following a World Cup soccer game got me thinking.

    He said, and I’m paraphrasing here, “I’m not really a fan of soccer, but I become nationalistic when America competes on a national level.”

    Patriotism is defined as love for or devotion to one’s country. With the Fourth of July holiday looming, I wonder if we feel devotion to and love for our country all the time or just every four years with a World Cup or every two years with an Olympics or just one day every July.

  • Seeking World War II vets from Oldham County

    A few weeks ago I wrote about Honor Flights. Since then, a group of Oldham County residents has begun work to identify World War Two veterans who live in Oldham County. The group wants to make sure that all Oldham County veterans that are eligible for Honor Flights are able to participate.

    Honor Flights take veterans, free of charge, to Washington DC to visit the World War Two Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial (the Marine Memorial).

  • What did the founders of America say about God?

    Hanging over my office desk is a picture of General George Washington in humble prayer in a pine grove, with his horse, at Valley Forge. It is an inspiring picture of an inspiring man of prayer. Skeptics want to claim that all representations of our first president as a devout man of faith are false.

    Here are some of the things George Washington said about God. They are taken from the book, George Washington, The Writings of Washington, edited by John C. Fitzpatrick.
