If you missed where this all started yesterday, then here is the reference point:
Part 1: Take Back the Culture: Karen Vaughn
If you did not watch the radio show on The Blaze or read the transcript, then you have no idea how much more you missed when Karen was interviewed by Glenn Beck later in the day on his television program. She is absolutely filled with joy and light in spite of the grievous circumstances that have brought her to where she is today, a World Changer.
I want to begin with this great quote by Karen while on the radio show yesterday:
“And I say the greatest principle I can teach any mom is let your husband raise a man. It’s hard not to interfere. But let him raise a man.”
Another observation from Karen that is equally important, from the television program as she discussed some of the reasons for writing her book:
“I think that the concept of liberty has been lost on this generation. I think it has been driven out as a dirty word.”
Those quotes lead me to Andrew Lumish, who is working to take back the culture in his backyard as The Good Cemetarian (he is on Facebook):
Glenn Praises Man Who Meticulously Restores Veterans’ Gravestones: ‘You’ve Started Something Really Amazing’
QUOTING FROM THE TRANSCRIPT:
ANDREW: Occasionally I will take students with me, high school students who love to go and I’ll have them step back in the footsteps. And it’s always good to know the history of the person and the events of that. So I’ll have them stand in the — descendants who would have stood there at the funeral, and we talk about what the world was like, what the United States was when they were alive and when they die. And what’s great, you get the bad raps on the Millennials. The attention and love that these high school kids have, from different backgrounds — you know what it’s like in Tampa. It’s muddy. It’s wet. And they don’t mind. They sweat. They get out there, and they have a great time and they learn a history lesson. So the negativity about Millennials. But my experience, my own son, about to turn 21, it’s been fantastic. It’s been a great experience. And not just for them. It’s therapeutic for me as well.
And there you have it. A mother and a part time photographer. Reclaiming America. Restoring American Values as each one does a part to Take Back The Culture by focusing on those who need the experiences most. The Giver and the Receiver.
Focusing on the youth of America, and especially empowering the parents of those youth to train up their children to preserve God, Family and Country through personal history and histories from the lives of those who have lived untold stories of agony and ecstasy, is how we learn that we too can become and raise up a host of World Changers instead of snowflakes.
