"My brilliant son Elijah, who is five, asked his mother yesterday, 'What is duty?'
My brilliant wife gave him the perfect answer. After thinking for a moment she told him, 'Duty is doing what God expects of you.'
Don't you wish we had people in public office who understood such simple truth? Wouldn't it be great to have folks in leadership who understand and are committed to fulfilling the most basic responsibilities to God and their fellow men that are associated with their sacred oath of office?
Let us join together and act boldly to make it so, before it too late for our country, for Elijah and his contemporaries, and for their children. Please."
