If you think the country is in trouble, then be a nail. You may think you can’t do much. Maybe you can do much more than you realize. Consider the wise writings of Benjamin Franklin and many others who have penned variations of an old proverb. A proverb found from writings as far back as the 13th century. My adaptation is derived from Fifty Famous People by James Baldwin. It reads:
For want of a nail, the shoe was lost
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost
For want of a horse, the battle was lost
For the failure of a battle, the kingdom was lost –
All for want of a horseshoe nail
Taking time to visit your capitol may seem inconsequential when compared to scores of other activities a person could find. Nothing could be further from the truth. Each one of us can help save the nation by actively participating in our national heritage—our civic duty.
Civic engagement is as simple as the nail mentioned in the proverb above. Grassroots Gold can show you how to engage. We have a republic if we can keep it. The eternal vigilance our Founder’s decreed can only come from an immersed citizenry. Without this critical element in the constitutional process, our communities, states, and federal system of government will be vulnerable to those ill-intentioned on keeping us “of, by, and for the people.”
Inspired by the Declaration of Independence, Abraham Lincoln coined the term: “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” You are one of those people to which President Lincoln was referring. Please do not neglect this opportunity to help save our nation.
