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.

Madison Rising: The Star-Spangled Banner

At the heart of Awakenings are many American icons: George Washington, The Declaration of Independence, the American Flag, the American Eagle, the Statue of Liberty just to name a few. Among those most highly recognized is our National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner.

While our nation is considered relatively young in comparison to European countries, i.e., the European Bronze Age circa 3200 BC in Greece, America is rich in beliefs and values. She was founded on principles of faith, honor and courage. The bravest of the brave fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms Americans enjoy today.

From their own website, "Madison Rising brings great rock music back to the forefront of popular culture. With songs ranging from the guitar heavy opening track "Right To Bear," to the hauntingly epic sounds of "Honk If You Want Peace," to the beautiful violins of "Hallowed Ground," it is clear that this band is on a mission to not only make great music, but also send a message that American culture is alive and well."

Thank you, Madison Rising, not only for your great music but for your love of America, your land, my land!

God Bless America!
