As of today, this blog is now one year old. This is my 507th post, I think, and I have had upwards of 11,000 hits since I began. I realize that is a modest number, not much to write home about, but I am happy that anybody sees fit to stop by and read my ramblings here.
I began this blog last year with a sense of urgency about what was happening to my country and my people and my culture; My thought was only to express some of my deep concerns and to vent my frustrations about what I witnessed. I also wanted to say a few things here that I did not see being expressed on many of the other blogs and forums, with the hope of at least stimulating some thought or discussion, on however small a scale.
I know there are many, many individuals who have very worthwhile blogs out there now, and occasionally I wonder if my voice, being only one among so many, is needed or heeded, but then I simply tell myself that even if I were the only one to visit this blog, then I would consider it worthwhile if only for cathartic reasons.
And as I begin the second year of this blog, I see that again, illegal aliens and their accomplices are marching in our streets, just as they were at the time of my first entries on this blog. So have we come full circle, with the invaders marching and demanding, and our 'leaders' pushing amnesty relentlessly? It would seem so. Are we progressing or regressing or standing still? Sometimes I wonder. At the very least, the amnesty bill has not been passed, despite the furious efforts on the part of our treasonous politicians. I like to think we are holding our own, we vanishing Americans. So I will continue here as long as I have the heart to do it. And I do have a heart for my country and my heritage and my fellow Americans.
I thank all of you for being here.
I am content with my relatively modest number of visitors; quality is more important than quantity for me, and my regular readers and commenters are perceptive and intelligent people, judging by your input here. And what's more important, I know that many of you share my concerns for the future of this Republic and our way of life, and that fact, most of all, is gratifying to me, knowing that there are many good Americans out there in these troubled times.
I hope you will continue to stop by this blog and give me your thoughts and opinions on the issues of our day.
