"Out of sight, out of mind"?
There's once was a saying: "Out of sight, out of mind". It's so true.
Soon, someone may try and ban that too, but not on my watch!
Paintings that reflected the values, principles, and history that made America great were once commonly displayed, everywhere. They came with uplifting, inspirational true stories that lifted a persons spirit as well as our country in the eyes of the world. These works of art, be they paintings, music or written, etc. served as silent witnesses, anchor points of truth. However, many of them have been 'slowly moved'...placed into darkened closets and
therefore, 'Out of sight, out of mind' .
Because I believe this should not only stop, it should be reversed, I've done something about it. In my case, many people assume that paintings are not 'supposed to be' or even 'allowed to be' displayed in public or government buildings and offices. On the contrary. It has been my 'first-hand personal experience', that most of the officials have dealt with have been very receptive in the past and many still are today. You may be surprised to learn that I've had many good meetings, followed up with kind 'Thank You' letters, from liberal Democrats as well as conservative Republicans. However, I've never received one from the 'far-left' Socialist - Marxist. After the collapse of the old Communist Russia or U.S.S.R. Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, many people assumed that the threat would go away. I did not! Why? Because it has always been a Spiritual issue and it still is. America is Pro-God. Communism/Socialism is Anti-God. Lenin stated that the goal of Socialism is Communism.
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.”
I have discovered, that one of the best ways to personally meet with an otherwise hard to reach person, was to present them with a reproduction of
Bound to Glory. They usually love photo ops. If you are wondering where they stand on Faith and Freedom in America. That is the acid test. It not only applies to 'politicians', but the same also goes for 'spiritual' leaders. I've always found it interesting to see where, or if they displayed it. That could be a story in itself.
they which come in may see the light.
In essence, Bound to Glory is that candle.
God, Constitution, and Freedom.
At this juncture, America is at a crossroads. To the best of my ability,
I've started down a path that all are welcome to help grow deep and wide.
In the past, we personally funded the cost of printing and delivering reproductions to be presented to recipients at all levels. Whether they were here in America or abroad. We also donated prints for fundraisers.
While phase one of the 'pilot' program accomplished its main objective, it was only a matter of time until funds would run out. That can happen if you don't ask. We were then hit directly by Hurricane Charlie. Sometime after that,
Bound to Glory went into its second dormant period.
On May 5, 2015, I called a friend associated with Bound to Glory.
I told her I felt Donald Trump needed to become the next President.
That began phase two. This time, things need to be much different.
Rather than contacting and reaching a couple of thousand people,
several million people need to be reached that can contact
millions of people.
