Review By LAWonder10:

In this non-fiction book of patriotic quotes, R. Blake Wilson does a great job of inspiring and uplifting his readers. Many of these passages are welll-known but some of them are unfamiliar sayngs. Nevertheless, the manner in which he presents them, brings to mind a time where integrity, honesty and honor meant something.

Once, the citizens of these United States valued and appreciated the huge sacrifices of so many and for the grueling, difficult  hours, days, and weeks our country’s forefathers spent on truly becoming “United States” . The document of The Constitution was truly created by “Divine Intervention”. With so many diverse opinions, beliefs and lifestyles, human ature would not have come to terms with one another.

Among the strong statements of deication and loyalty are also many warnings. I have listed but a few.:

“Make yourself sheep and the olves will eat you.”   Benjamin Franklin

“Stars on  a field of blue; one for each colony; bars of red, for the blood of sacrifice; on a ground of white for love and peace”.   Betsy Ross

“A  FREE PEOPLE ought not oly to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms aand ammunition to maintain a status of INDEPENDENCE from any ho mght attempt to abuse them, which would include their own governmen”  George Washington

“Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, and enslaves press, and a disarmed populace”   Jmes Madison

“The government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.”  Ronald Regan

There are so  many more from men and woman from early years of the nation to the present time.

These are thoughts much needed in this time wuith our fractured governing forces.

I offer a Five Stars rating

This book wa gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
