He built this mountain as a tribute to God.  No matter your religious beliefs it is still a place of inspiration, hope, and love. Besides, Leonard is probably the nicest and sweetest person I have ever met.

Next week I’ll have an all new original video about a trip I took to a place called the EL Paso Mountains. Until then enjoy the summer, get outside, and look up at the night sky.

God Bless America

“I have no fear that the result of our experiment will be that men may be trusted to govern themselves without a master.” Thomas Jefferson

“The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism…. It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn.”
