Hello everyone (especially those that attended "AGENDA" this evening); I am soooooo thankful for everyone that came. I am glad to be associated with sucha great group of people. You guys are the best!
I tried to formulate some thoughts and share them (spur of the moment) in front of you. I fear I did a very poor job, so I'd like to revisit the theme of those commments and see if I can develop them a bit better. (I am a better writer than a speaker.....I think.)
I had shared that the plea (in the documentary) to homeschool is not just something that the parents, if they are able, should implement. I know that in this economy it is difficult with both parents of many households having to work to keep their heads above water. But, there is a valueable and largely untapped resource in the room, of grandparents: that are retired and have the means, as well as time, to step into that place to help nurture and educate the upcoming generation. We have it in our power, in a magnanimous act of sacrifice, to take the things dreamed of and saved for retirement, let them go and redirect them, in order to nurture our precious children in the values and truths that have kept us, and will continue to keep us, free. After all, if we lose the country, what will all those things be worth, anyway? What will they matter? And what kind of future will we hand to them? I have accepted the challenge for my grands, with G*d's help, as long as I am able.
As I thought about the "challenge" I voiced at the meeting, I realized that some may not be suited or physically able to homeschool. So........ the other possibility is to use that "nest egg" to make sure the "grand-kiddles" (as my friend calls them) get a good, moral, spiritual education, based in critical thinking skills and well versed in accurate American history.
This is a crucial time that will take extraordinary efforts to ensure freedom for our decendants. What we do for them will be the most important investment we can and will ever make.
May we pass to them the true dream that is America. That they, along with the country, would be saved.
Children are a gift from the L*rd! They are the guarantors of freedom and the future.
Blessings to you all
