My business card reads, “100% Rotarian Volunteer”. Since the death of my first wife, I have dedicated my time in service to others, having participated in close to one hundred humanitarian service projects, both in the United States and abroad. As a Project Development Director of the National Guard Bureau of International Affairs – State Partnership Program and with the support of various Rotary Clubs, I have traveled extensively in helping others less fortunate
than those of us who live in America.
Down on Main Street . . . Searching for American Exceptionalism, which follows my first book, Say NO to the Undertaker . . . Winning Your Battle with Cancer(2006), is delivered from a prospective of viewing the world possibly far different than many people who live here and may take our freedoms for granted.
For two hundred, twenty-seven years, since those 39 Founding Fathers ratified the U.S. Constitution, our country has been able to preserve the greatest experiment in government ever envisioned. It hasn’t been an easy journey for the citizens to bear.
2.7 million Patriots have been casualties over the decades to protect and defend the most envied truths we hold to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In that endeavor our grandparents, parents, and many exceptional Americans have built the greatest economic powerhouse the world has ever known, which we have gladly shared with the rest of the world…but most importantly, it has been the blood of our youth which has allowed the world time and again to triumph over tyranny.
In today’s current political environment which is endangering our very way of life, and with many Americans taking for granted all that God has bestowed upon this great country, the time has never been more appropriate than now to remind every citizen what American Exceptionalism is all about.
