There is so much to learn from studying history, from the ancient civilizations to modern times. The trends that are evident in history’s repetitive cycles should serve as a forewarning about events that are likely to happen, but the probable outcomes that stem from our poor decisions are too often are ignored.
The past hundred years are especially fascinating because of the exponential changes that have occurred. Many of us alive today had parents and grandparents that lived through the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, and other events that transformed their lives and their world view.
Many parents raised my generation, the Vietnam War generation, to have a strong work ethic, to save for tomorrow, to be patriotic and love America, and to value and pursue individual freedom, constitutional rights, morality, and God.
From the perspective of our generation, it often seems that so many younger Americans today are missing those values we know are essential to the preservation of the Natural Law Rights guaranteed to each of us by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
There is, however, hope for our nation’s future . . .
Dr. Dan’s guest on Freedom Forum Radio this weekend is Madison Cawthorn, US Congressional Candidate for North Carolina’s 11th District.
Madison was home-schooled by loving parents and raised and educated to live by the principles and moral values shared by so many patriotic Americans. His dream after graduation was to become an officer in the US Navy, and, with the endorsement of Congressman Mark Meadows, Madison received an appointment to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Madison’s life was on a trajectory for success and the achievement of his goals.
Unfortunately, at the age of 18, Madison was in a terrible auto accident that put him in the hospital for 18 months and left him paralyzed from the waist down.
Through determination and hard work, Madison found the courage and grit to become successful in several business ventures before deciding to run for US Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District. He is one of the two candidates vying for the GOP nomination in the run-off election on June 23, 2020.
