The origins of great success are often unpredictable, endangered and vulnerable to catastrophe. Yet in America, there exists an explicit decree to all citizens that true success, regardless of its improbability, is possible for all. It doesn’t matter who you are, what your past holds or how dim your future may appear.
Take the story of a young boy from Virginia, for example. His father was a mediocre businessman that owned relatively little. His mother grew up an orphan and was, at times, difficult to deal with. The young boy’s hopes for a formal education were d
ashed when his father died. Nobody had any expectations for him to grow up to
be particularly successful or important.
But he was inspired by his half-brother, who took him hunting and fishing and told him stories of military adventures in far-away lands. The young boy was stirred to work hard and become a soldier, which he did, and would successfully lead the American forces to independence from Great Britain as General George Washington.
Our new blog will probably not leave as profound an effect upon this great nation as Washington did, but we want it to inspire. We want it to inform. And we want it to engage. In the upcoming months we’ll highlight patriotic stories, Freedom Festival event news and national current events relevant to our mission
to celebrate, teach, honor and strengthen no levy casino traditional American values.
