The final fading embers of twilight were extinguished in the distance. I wiped the rain from my eyes. We pulled the first of the boats up to the dock. McConkey’s Ferry only had space to load 2 boats at a time. Washington wanted all the troops across by midnight. Colonel Glover had told his Excellency it was impossible, but his men would try to do the impossible.

Threats to Religious Freedom and the Statue of Liberty

Last summer my family and I went on vacation to New York City. One of the things we wanted to see in New York was the Statue of Liberty. We love to go to places that symbolize freedom. Our passion is to see people live in freedom.

It is no secret that there is a concerted attempt to marginalize and destroy religious freedom in America. In the next months and years we are going to find out the true strength of religious freedom in the US. Do we want to know the answer?

Amazing Grace might be the most popular song ever written. But do you know the story behind it?
When the author wrote “Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me” why did he call himself a wretch? Is it exaggeration or hyperbole as some have suggested? To John Newton, who wrote Amazing Grace, it was no exaggeration. Newton was the 18th century captain of a slave ship who transported upwards of 20,000 kidnapped Africans to slavery in the West Indies.

Why did George Washington cross the Delaware and why is it such a big deal anyway?

When I look at what is going on at so many colleges and universities, where free speech and debate are being openly attacked and demonized, I am struck by the fact that there was more intellectual freedom in parts of Medieval Europe 800 years ago than there is in the 21st century at institutions like Yale, Brown, and the University of Missouri.

ISIS and France's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
Like so many people, I am still angry and in mourning over the unprovoked slaughter of innocent people in France. Paris is only the latest manifestation of ISIS brutality.
In a blog post I did back in February about ISIS, here is the conclusion of what I wrote:

The New York City Freedom Trail
This past August our family went to New York City and upstate New York on vacation. There is no other city anywhere like New York. Did you know it was the nation's capital when Washington became president?
