Finding principles is America's history

Finding principles in historic figures, don't worry, we'll pretend like this isn't a history lesson!

The 9/12 Project

The 9/12 project.  Launched by Glenn Beck to bring America back to the unity we put ourselves in on 9/12/01.  The day after the towers fell.  No one cared what you looked like, how much was in your bank account, or where you were from.  We came together and supported one another.  I watched as people all over this country remembered 9/11 with banners, flags, tears, songs and posts on Facebook this year.  Then a post came across my wall that changed my perception.

Remember 9/11, but never forget one very important thing;


 How true.  A tragedy without a response is really just that.  A tragedy.  Maybe that's why I like the idea of the 9/12 project so much.  Take what you've learned about yourself from that day, and apply it to the world, if I may use a cliche here, "to make the world a better place."  I'm not trying to take away from 9/11, I'm humbly suggesting we make ourselves better because of it.

I am in no way connected with the 9/12 Project, I don't endorse them on their behalf.  I am an advocate of Principles and Values.  An advocate of being a better person.

Throughout this blog, I intend to take moments in history - people you know, people you don't know - to illustrate one or more of the 9 principles and/or 12 values.  All while hopefully learning some of our amazing history!

Take Glenn Beck's 40 Day & 40 Night Challenge today and live these Principles!
