Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

What is life without history? Isn’t life itself history in the making? Every word we say, everything we do, becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history to be boring, think again; it is who we are, what we do, and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds, but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.
~Awakenings Foreword


As of late I have been saddened by the signs of declining patriotism in America. All to well do I remember 1976 when Kate Smith belted out God Bless America with such strong conviction the words struck heavily into the soul of every American! Of course, her debut goes back to days of the radio when on November 10, 1938 the original FIRST broadcast radio performance of God Bless America by Irving Berlin was introduced by none other than Kate Smith. All to well do I remember streets lined with America flags in honor of those serving or who have served in the military forces of the United States of America: Those who have left their homes, families and loved ones to defend America's honor and freedom. All to well do I remember. . .

The inspiring anthem, God Bless America, impacted young and old as emotions swelled bringing forth an avalanche of tears because of America's sovereighty. This was a time of pride in a country represented as the land of the free and the home of the brave. People felt good about America and what she stood for. . .

In times of insecurity, it was the responsibility of our leaders to erase doubt and minimalize fear. Words of Franklin D. Roosevelt, "Only thing we have to fear is fear itself" and John F. Kennedy, "Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country" resonated (and still resonate) heartfelt symbolism of America's challenges and her greatness.

What has happened to the genuine, heartfelt love of our country? Have we stopped believing in the values and purpose set forth by our forefathers penned in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States? Have we forgotten the sacrifices made for freedom and liberty?



A grave price is being paid every moment of every day of the year for all the freedom America has to offer. Let us not forget those who have fought or are fighting for our nation; they are the epitome of the human spirit called freedom!
