To Be Grateful

"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His mercy, to implore His protection and favor... That great and beneficent author of all good that was, that is, or ever shall be, that we may then unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people." --George Washington



"It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth -- and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. ... For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it." --Patrick Henry

Ovaltine






In 1948.............



Gather Around My Dear Friends...




There is a problem,,,and we must unite and work together.
Our land is in  threat of great distruction.
We need your help to save it.
We have counted on leaders to take care of matters of the kingdom and it's freedoms.
We were not watching closely enough.
The greed and power has bewitched the leaders, and only "we" can bring them back to our laws and save us from the great darkness.



You may write to me for help in the task.
