It takes a family to educate a child

"...Are we doing a good enough job of teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world?...We've got to do a better job of getting across the idea that America is freedom--freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of enterprise.  And freedom is special and rare.  It's fragile and it needs protection...So we've got to teach history based on what's important, on why the pilgrims came here...If we forget what we did we won't know who we are--I am warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result ultimately in an erosion of The American Spirit. 
~Ronald Reagan Farewell Address

If we are committed to teaching our children about the PAST, we have greater hope of preserving the FUTURE of America.  Having an understanding of the Biblical foundation on which this country was built upon, and knowing those principles with which our systems of government, Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights were created,  is a critical subject in the education of our children.    

"A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved.  It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins." 
 ~Benjamin Franklin

America, it's time for you to wake up and realize that our almost always left-leaning Public Schools are doing a less-than-acceptable job in this area, and in countless other areas as well. 
It's time to take back our roles!!!
