As I buzzed around bloggy world this morning I came up on Jerri's blog "Simple Sweet Home". I was caught up by this picture...

I was intrigued and continued to read... To my surprise it was about Glenn Beck (yep, I'm a big fan) and the "movement" he is starting. I totally related to her post because we both agree that we don't like to put politics and other world issues mixed in with our blogs. That's not what I like to blog about or what I want in my blog... But this is different. As Jerri said on her blog, this is an "independent/nonpolitical project". For me, this isn't about Republicans vs. Democrats, it's about what is right. So I'm sharing...for my own personal selfish reasons.

This movement "We Surround Them" is about real principles and values. The same ones that have been lost, corrupted and ignored...probably why things are falling apart. I'm one of those people that believes you can pass as many bills as you want, put whomever you'd like in office, but unless we have principles and values in place, NOTHING WILL HELP US!!! I'm a Christian, and I believe in God...and I know that in order for "change" to happen we must go back to the sacred basics this nation was built upon.

I'm a concerned mother, wife, and American. I'm worried.

Glenn is promoting "You Are Not Alone"...we can do something. He is encouraging Americans who believe in the same basic principles to come together and work together for the sake of the country and demand that government be accountable to the people again.

He says, "If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common."

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Along with the 9 Principles he brings the 12 values back into the light:
  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude
Make sure you visit his site, tune into his show weekdays @ 5pm on FoxNews and get involved. And don't forget tomorrow's kickoff, Friday, March 13, You Are Not Alone Special.

We Are Not Alone...

Thanks for sharing! As I have surfed, I have noticed more folks speaking out about their concern. I think your post is great to help people who want to do something positive find this "movement."

I truly believed we would see change, not necessarily the change pushed in campaigns,but a change in how we as citizens were involved in our countries future. For us start keeping up with what polititions were really doing and have a say in it - and this might be it - guess we had to see it getting worse in order to wake us up and get us motivated to bring it back.

Hey, great post!

It's about time someone in media stood up and set an example for America. I have to admit that Glenn sometimes goes overboard on his assumptions, but for the few exceptions I share his opinions.

So much so that today I started my own related blog: RightWingRag.com

Take a look if you like, I would appreciate any feedback, positive or negative.

Oh, and I hope you don't mind if I link to your site from mine.

Thanks again,
Chris in Missouri.
