I’m sitting here at the Denver International Airport awaiting a Frontier flight to Salt Lake City. I was recognized by a retired USAF fighter pilot who flew A-10 Warthogs– Army guys love that plane. As we were sitting and chatting, a young Frontier employee came by and asked if we were veterans. We replied, “affirmative ma’am.”
She thanked us and gave us both a card, which contained a personal note from her, J. Noble, and the American’s Creed. The Creed was written by William Tyler Page and was adopted by the US House of Representatives on April 3, 1918. It says in part:
“I believe in the United States of America…established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives…It is my duty to my Country to love it, support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect the flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”
Thank you so very much Ms. Noble for this subtle reminder of why I am a Guardian of the Republic. To all of you reading this, I humbly ask that this evening you take the time as a family or just yourself, and recite this Creed, if you believe in it. Then print it out, frame it, and display it in your home. Molon Labe!
