Washington was really THE indispensable man to the success of the American Revolution and the adoption of the Constitution. We need to acknowledge his many accomplishments by putting a stake into the heart of Presidents' Day and reviving Washington's Birthday.
Better yet, we should work on celebrating all our Founding Fathers and great Patriots via Patriot Week. Co-created by myself and my daughter, Patriot Week renews America's spirit by celebrating the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history.
Anchored by the key dates of September 11 and September 17 (the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution), each day has a separate focus. In the Inaugural year of 2009, over participants were involved (schools, media, universities, nonprofits), and we expect 2010 to much bigger.
Please join the effort by visiting PatriotWeek.org.
