We Need Nimitz Faith This Fourth of July

President Biden’s debate disaster (exposing his deteriorating mental state) and some recent Supreme Court decisions have created a “gust” of possible renewal in the American nation. They are answers to prayer, and I will thoroughly discuss their impact in coming articles.

But this week we celebrate the “Glorious Cause” of the birth of the United States of America on July 4, 1776. As during colonial times, we face some formidable obstacles to the renewal/transformation of our declining civilization.

Memorial Day 2023: The Bravest Boehme

Memorial Day 2022: The Bravest Boehme

My 89-year old mom and I will visit Sunset Lane today–our hometown cemetery–to honor loved ones on Memorial Day. The scenic property overlooking Sinclair Inlet will be bedecked with 200 American flags honoring those who fought for our freedom.

“Forgetting” should be considered a sin in our lives.

Every Memorial Day I love to honor my “Uncle Dick” Boehme who gave his life for our country.

He is the Bravest Boehme.
