My American dream is for my children and my grandchildren to enjoy the God-given freedom America has been blessed with. But, unlike today's cultural definition of "freedom" - a freedom that encourages licentiousness and hedonism - my American dream is that our nation will return to the Judeo Christian principles that made it exceptional. I cannot envision any path back to greatness that does not include a revival, of sorts, of virtue. And frankly, I do not wish to live in an America that is economically prosperous, but morally bankrupt.
Here is what I am doing to make this happen: I am writing books for youngsters about American history. I am talking to parents and grandparents about the dangers our children and grandchildren face if we do not return to virtue. It must start with us. We must teach history the way it happened, not the way the left has rewritten it. We must teach respect for America and our heroes. We must live a life of virtue ourselves. And we must keep talking to our children and grandchildren. Tell them what freedom means to you. What God has done in your life. How your faith has helped you overcome struggles. And tell them that freedom is not licentiousness, the right to do whatever you want to do.
My American Dream is a return to a great nation where virtue is once again honored and respected.
