History Burning

May 10th marks the 88th anniversary of the infamous Nazi book burning of over 25,000 books considered “un-German” in Berlin’s Opera Square. Books labeled extreme and immoral burned as Hitler’s appointed “Minister of Propaganda,” Joseph Goebbels, the sole source for government information, news media and the arts, delivered his speech. As he well knew, in a tyranny, contrary ideas or alternate narratives cannot be allowed to circulate.

Libraries as knowledge systems are often targeted in wars, quite simply because the destruction of a people’s past is necessary to occupy and remake them. Quite naturally the revision or obliterating of history is the business of conquerors.

The Library of Louvain, Belgium was destroyed by German troops in 1914 to international outrage. An Irish newspaper reported it as a “calamity without parallel in history since the destruction of the Library of Alexandria.” The Louvain was rebuilt by Americans in 1922 but was again destroyed by the Germans in 1940. It has been reconstructed once again and stands today.

In the sack of Washington, D.C., in 1814, Royal Navy Admiral Sir George Coburn targeted the Library of Congress where America’s founding documents and history were kept. Thomas Jefferson called the attack an act of barbarism, and he offered his own library as a replacement. Congress purchased the library from Monticello of 6,500 volumes for $24,000. Unfortunately, that library was destroyed in an accidental fire in 1850, moving Congress to again reaffirm the importance of a national knowledge system by establishing funds for a permanent Library of Congress.

There are many other examples of enemy troops destroying library collections. The National Library of Bosnia, archives in Iraq, and many writings in China are examples. In our own lifetimes, Communist countries know to target a nation’s history in any conquest for domination:

As we reflect on the sobering consequences of socialists and communist forces bold enough to set their sights on America after spending last summer destroying statues, memorials, and historic artifacts, let us never forget. Reminded are we on this 88th anniversary of the Nazi’s knowledge purge that the books collected by families, who read about American liberty by hearth fires, have become a most valuable commodity to the future and freedom of the next generation.

In LaGrange, Kentucky just such a preservation effort is underway. The family book collection of a visionary man, Colonel Ron Ray, has been donated to a library effort. The Colonel spent the latter half of the 20th century collecting eyewitness accounts and early historic writings that explain the birth and miracle of the American’s Constitutional Republic to attempt to understand for himself and others the true casus belli in the battleground known as Vietnam.

Let us not foolishly relinquish America’s true history to the omnipotent power of “cancel culture” held solely by private big tech operatives. George Gilder reports in 2017 at Asilomar information-age luminaries secretly gathered to discuss how their inventions threaten to attain consciousness and reduce human beings to patronizing pets:

‘The Asilomar Statement of AI Principles, signed by eight thousand scientists, representing a 97 percent consensus-including a passel of Nobel laureates and Hawking-echoed the billowy affirmations of Google’s own “Do No Evil” precepts and statement of principles of Burning Man. ‘Superintelligence should only be developed in the service of widely shared ethical ideals, and for the benefit of humanity rather than one state or organization…An arms race in lethal autonomous weapons should be avoided.’

Asilomar 2017Big Tech fully proclaims its alignment with a narrow globalist agenda and those outside the party “online” are canceled or subject to the “May 10th” treatment. We are living in a time as George Orwell warns in 1984, where we find “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, and the lie became truth.” Already targeted are conservatives, Christians, the 3 percent of dissenting scientists not aligned with the Asilomar agreement, and others, who suddenly find their storage terminated with no access to years of published work. One wonders where can one go to teach and succor those born into the prevailing lies of the future, who never knew the truth of history?

Finally, China’s communist party leader Xi Jinping has directed his regime to focus on controlling the global internet as a national strategy for world domination. Just as the Amorite, he understands the eternal power of media over the minds and hearts of humankind and the need to weaponize it. Can we trust that what has been is that which shall be? We know each generation must learn it anew. Thus all due haste is required to move forward with the Library of American History, where future generations can discover the trials and benefits of the great experiment that resulted in One Nation Under God, with the eternal organic utterance of “Liberty and Justice for All,” for the great battle is Who is Lord and Who will save us? The battle is won and the answer secure as many founders knew and many others since have reaffirmed: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

God bless America.

Real Men and Chicken Necks

Recently my friend Dominique and I motored to Evansville to say good-bye to Ray Vescovi who died at age 91. I never met Ray, but I knew Ray’s daughter.  I say I didn’t know Ray, but I’ve known so many like Ray.

Upon Ray’s graduation in 1951, I learned from his obit that he signed with the Boston Red Sox. Ray was quite an athlete, one of the boys of summer, who played for the love of the game. The Korean War interrupted his early life and like so many of the “greatest generation,” he simply went to serve his nation for two years as a First Lieutenant with the 101st Airborne.

Before media giants, baseball businesses and the big bucks, Ray retired from baseball after three years of play and settled in Evansville, Indiana.  He married his beautiful Mary Suzann, raised 5 children, four girls and one son.  Ray and his bride lived to celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary. 

I suspected without knowing that I would appreciate being in the mourner’s ranks for Ray Vescovi, because I appreciate this self-sacrificing generation. Not all of them were givers, but, overall, there was a quiet acceptance of the patterns of living that are unalterable in any time and age.  At 72, I now keenly understand the foibles of human nature and the finite nature of time.  Today mourning Ray serves to clarify reflections on my own life. 

When Ray’s accomplished eldest daughter rose to bravely deliver her eulogy, I was happy to learn more as she recalled her father’s life for all of us.  In Ray’s 41 years as a teacher, he touched many lives accounting for the great number of student comments on the funeral home’s obit page. The 2020 pandemic has changed so many things, including how we say goodbye to our family and friends.  Former students clicked their remembrances of Mr. Vescovi expressing their digital thanks to him.  Teachers, who are called to the profession like Ray would have so valued the students’ comments because he obviously wasn’t teaching for the money. 

Then, his daughter said something that made the trip for me.  She thought it important to mention that her father always ate the chicken neck.  Like my family and so many other families of that time, we all sat down together at the table for dinner and there was one chicken no matter how many there were to feed.  Ray’s wife Mary Suzann no doubt prepared the chicken for her family along with vegetable side dishes which probably included mashed potatoes, but Ray always ate the neck. The children spent years thinking the neck was his favorite piece of chicken. 

I thought back through Ray’s history. He was the child of Depression-era parents and certainly learned from them about want. Then during his growing up years WWII rationing surely taught him frugality.  His military training taught him that his men ate first and, if there wasn’t enough, officers went without or with what was left.  It follows that Ray’s family got the best pieces of the chicken and never suspected anything other than he really liked the chicken’s neck. As the eldest of 7, I became a connoisseur of the chicken’s gizzard, back and neck.  Trust me, a neck is no wing so popular now.  The truth is much more likely that Ray chose the neck because he preferred a life of duty marked by sacrifice, and certainly not because he liked the neck.  

Dominique and I left Evansville as Ray’s family motored off in the slow processional to the cemetery for their father’s burial with full military honors.  I found myself reassured with a peaceful satisfaction in now being acquainted with Ray Vescovi.  I am part of the Vescovis’ collective memory of a time when families were led by a sacrificing father, who had honorably served his nation, married one woman, raised his children while working to support them, and for Ray that meant teaching and pouring into others his entire life. 

Ray represents an American era I will always cherish.  Good-bye Ray and thank you for your last lesson to me this day as your life’s impact continues to ripple out beyond time into eternity.

Step One: Buy the Land

As Colonel was in his last days I was able to tell him that I was going to build a library in his honor. I like to think that he heard and understood me and was able to make his way to heaven knowing that his legacy would live on, and he would be “a voice to and for a generation,” as he always strived to be.

A week after his passing, Becky Oldham had found and bought at auction the perfect place to build the library: a vacant lot behind the Oldham County Clerk’s Office.

Step Two: Draw a Blueprint

When Ron and I married we spent a good deal of time focusing our Sunday studies on the Old and New Testaments particularly as the basis for American law.  I, in fact, gave Ron as a lawyer, a Bible early on and suggested he read it as a law book with special consideration to commandments, statutes, precepts, judgments, and ordinances.

One commentator we routinely checked in with on Sunday was Adam Clarke (1762 – 26 August 1832). Clarke began as a poorly educated man from Northern Ireland but became a renowned Methodist theologian and biblical scholar. He spent 40 years as one remarkably dedicated and skilled mind through the Bible and he wrote his commentary. Clarke’s was buoyed by his extensive scholarship on early Christian fathers, and then the Oriental writers in the Hebrew, Syriac, Arabic, Persian, Sanskrit, and other Eastern tongues, and this scope provided a most illuminating context for his commentary on the Scriptures.

As a young US Marine, Ron Ray went to Vietnam to fight communism, a man – centered government, and to uphold his oath as an officer to defend America against all enemies “foreign and domestic.” And like Adam Clarke, Ron spent 40 years dedicated to seriously collecting a library of over 10,000 books.   

The books contain the organic utterances upon which the historic foundations of American government is built and the numerous accounts in the mouths of many witnesses recorded from before the nation’s founding to the present day.

Ron’s combined legal training, experience, public service, and scholarship allowed him for over 30 years to weaponize his growing collection of books to reach civilian, military, and church leaders, public officials, and others in positions of authority and trust to arm them with carefully crafted cases to meet the challenges they faced upholding America’s founding principles.  

Today with the advent of the internet and now the destruction of historic monuments and eradication of books and literature, the ability to study and research from true and honest sources is quickly fading. Yet books remain the only unchangeable and secure source to be left to students and scholars of the future.  

The collection eventually outgrew our family home and now more than ever the books need a physical location for Colonel Ray’s library.  In July 2020, property for a library was secured as Ron passed away from injuries sustained in Vietnam. A vacant lot in Oldham’s County’s seat of LaGrange, Kentucky, right behind the courthouse is where we plan to build the library to house Colonel Ray’s collection.  

Establishing this library gives future generations access to the Colonel’s collection of largely out of print volumes on history and government. 

There exists today a digital archive of the Colonel’s publications, timely history-based press releases, educational briefings, media appearances, and ephemera. 

It is our duty to leave our children and grandchildren the necessary information tools they will need to continue to protect and preserve America’s freedoms so many have previously fought and sacrificed to uphold.  We are proud to announce drawings of the library will be available soon. Kentucky Architect John Stewart learned of the library project and volunteered his nearly three decades of work experience and his talented team of professionals to concept and design “The Colonel Ronald D. Ray Library of American History.”  At the end of my 40 years of working alongside the Colonel and then carrying on by securing his book collection would be a fitting tribute to all those whose lives are dedicated living lives to advancing the Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Preserving History Through The Library

The lessons of Vietnam struck the young US Marine Ron Ray like coin newly minted by sorrow and fury: Sorrow for the many who gave their lives and fury at being lied to during the war and lied about after the war.  Upon returning home, Ron took up the study of law to bring order to the chaos of war.  He carried home with him invisible wounds that crippled him as sure as a missing arm or leg, but his war injuries didn’t deter him.  

He spent his post-Vietnam life remembering those Kentuckians who gave their last full measure of devotion by building the Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial and for over 50 years he amassed a carefully chosen collection of books to remember.  The collection covers the foundation of America through the 20th century.  The books are written by witnesses to the domestic and foreign threats and represent a highly perishable time capsule especially in today’s world of clicking for truth and history.  

Big Tech is on the march to erase or recast the history accessed by clicking, but today the Ronald D. Ray Library of American History seeks to fill the void no matter what becomes of our collective virtual reality. 

Communist philosopher Antonio Gramsi declared that the truth is revolutionary.  Domination of the narrative, he declared: 

…is maintained through ideological or cultural means.  It is usually achieved through social institutions which allow those in power to strongly influence the values, norms, ideas, expectations, world view and behavior of the rest of society.

Colonel Ray fought a Marxists-supported enemy on the ground in Vietnam and stood against that same radical Marxist agenda upon returning home.  

The Colonel often said, “facts are stubborn things,” and used history to defend our “one nation under God” drawn from his expansive teaching library and mobilized by his fighting archive. 

Employing his extensive library and archive, Colonel Ray stood up to a Federal judge in Kentucky who, because of the Declaration of Independence’s references to Almighty God, declared it was a religious document, not a state document. 

A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do.  We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about…

President Woodrow Wilson, 1913

Relentless attacks upon America’s first principles came through the courts, the education system, medicine, and even the churches.  Colonel Ray was warned by the writings of Armenian-American journalist, news media critic and commentator, university professor and author Ben Bagdikian, that a media monopoly of international companies controls all print and broadcast.  

. . . Today, with six mega-corporations with interlocking interests in world government controlling all information given to the people, journalism has ceased to fulfill its role as the guardian of individual liberties and the watchdog of government and corporate abuse.  It is overwhelmingly documented as the guardian of one-world democratic socialism.

Add to that information monolith, Big Tech’s tyranny and the ability to mold entire nations by dominating the narrative is Gramsi’s dream realized.  

In the upheaval of the domestic war, Colonel Ray discovered the coordinated and well-planned generational war. Early in the 1950s, giant tax-exempt foundations gained power and influence to turn societal values, norms, ideas from a national to a single world view.  

In 1954, B. Carroll Reese headed a congressional committee to examine their actions.  It was clear then that their goals were treasonous.  The Committee reported:

It seems to this Committee that there is a strong tendency on the part of many social scientists whose research is favored by the major foundations toward the concept that there are no absolutes, that everything is indeterminate, that no standards of conduct, morals, ethics and governments are to be deemed inviolate, that everything, including basic moral law, is subject to change and that it is the part of the social scientists to take no principle for granted as a premise in social or juridical reasoning, however fundamental it may heretofore have been deemed to be under our Judeo-Christian moral system.

Then in November 1967, American History was suppressed in American schools, a decades long political objective of the ACLU, the NEA and others.  This event was reported in the NEA Journal’s “The New Social Studies.” Their official periodical commented on the shift of educational emphasis, since federal funds first flowed into education in 1965:

probably the most obvious change occurring in the social studies curriculum is a breaking away from the traditional dominance of history, geography, and civics.  Materials from the behavioral sciences ….sociology, social psychology….are being incorporated into both elementary and secondary school programs.

On October 12, 2002, Pulitzer Prize winning historian and author David McCullough spoke at the National Book Fair at the Smithsonian Institute: 

We are raising a generation of ‘historical illiterates. This historical ignorance is dangerous.  We face a foe today who believes in enforced ignorance—we don’t.”

And so, we are compelled by current events to preserve the lifetime collection of one who loved history, understood its power, and used it to hold back the forces that continue to attack our American way of life.  

The result of the removal of history from schools has resulted in a radicalized and ignorant generation who has easily bought the Marxist ideal proffered, ignorant of their own history and without ever hearing the end of the story.  One only needs to browse the Black Book of Communism to see the array of powerful leaders who executed millions of their own people in countries that fell under their rule.  

Not surprisingly, nearly 35 years later in 2001, a survey commissioned by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation found: 

  • One in five American teenagers didn’t know from what country America declared its independence.
  • Nearly one in four didn’t know who fought the Civil War.  
  • Thirteen percent thought the Civil War was between the United States and England. No wonder the siren song of Marxism has appealed to so many.

For twenty-five years, newspapers and magazines moved away from reporting on the nation’s newsmakers and world affairs to reporting on celebrities.  In 1997, the Project for Excellence in Journalism studied 6,020 stories from sixteen news outlets spanning 20 years.  

One of their most striking findings was that only 8% of the stories on the prime-time news magazines concern the combined areas of education, economics, foreign affairs, the military, national security, politics or social welfare issues.  Today, Time and Newsweek most often have cover stories in the area of consumer and health news and celebrity entertainment.

History calls us to rededicate ourselves to the noble and ever unfinished work that President Lincoln described as he stood on the blood-soaked ground of Gettysburg:

…that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

The loss of liberties is the price paid for forgetting the past, but sadder yet is watching younger generations click for limited and prepackaged news and information in search of a context for an advancing lawlessness. Just as young King Josiah rent his clothes, when he learned of the law and was preserved, it is hoped this book collection gathered by one who loved liberty and understood the battle, both foreign and domestic, will provide that context and ultimately an exodus.

A Pilgrimage

A Pilgrimage

January 6, 2021

A picture containing sky, person, outdoor, people

Description automatically generated

You can’t always trust what you read and see on social media.  I went to Washington DC on January 5 and 6, 2021, to witness Trump’s last gathering in a city I know very well and, then more from a sense of curiosity, to see how it would be portrayed in the media.  

I didn’t realize going to the Capitol to attend a lawful assembly would allow me in a small way to approach my husband’s post-Vietnam malaise.  A young Ron Ray volunteered to serve our nation and did so honorably and with distinction in Vietnam, but upon returning home he was spat upon, in uniform, by a stranger in the airport.  

The media was hellbent on dividing the American people over Vietnam, a war “against communism,” I might add. Their target became the military, America’s sons and daughters who were dying in staggering numbers eventually reaching 58,000+, a number only to grow later with war-related maladies.  The hate-filled animus the media propagated lasted over a decade only beginning to resolve when President Ronald Reagan officially welcomed the vets home and declared Vietnam a “noble cause.” Still Vietnam vets stood together to manage the corporate shame, going so far as to fund and build their own memorials.  

Today, in a very small way, I understand Ron’s unrelenting sorrow for being wrongly shamed for the acts of a few and/or for doing what national leaders sent them to do.  More recently, police officers who serve their cities and states only to be repeatedly painted as racists by a media bent on dividing us from our neighbors when our national security in no small part depends upon the ennobling command “to love one another.” 

As a responsible citizen and as a witness, causing no trouble and joined by hundreds of thousands of other fullhearted Americans on the Ellipse in Washington on a cold January day, I am being painted by the media with the same brush used for the few provocateurs who entered the Capitol building.  No one knows who those few hundred invaders are, but with each passing day the media’s rush to judgment, vitriol and indiscriminate shame rise to a stunning new level.  

Schooled by Peter Braestrup’s The Big Story and journalist Ben Bagdikian’s The Media Monopoly, Ron’s distrust of media was a constant starting when Walter Cronkite, “the most trusted man in America,” broadcast his CBS report from the safe side of the Perfume River in Hue, Vietnam, after the Tet Offensive.  

Ron heard Cronkite’s report on Tet in real-time for he was there. He knew Tet, a massive and bitterly fought battle at the Vietnamese New Year against the communist North Vietnam forces was a decisive victory for South Vietnam.  However, Cronkite declared Tet a “defeat.”

Cronkite’s big lie clearly gave aid and comfort to the communist enemy and often is cited in histories as the turning point in the war. It wouldn’t be long before America conceded to the communists and left the South Vietnamese to fend for themselves as the hope for freedom collapsed. Later, smugly and safely close to death, Cronkite proudly disclosed he was a secret proponent for “one world” governance.

Upon returning home, Ron found solace and fellowship in the writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), whose life was animated and defined by his dealings with communism in his homeland.  Of the media, he said: 

Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask; by whom has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, A World Split Apart, delivered June 8, 1978, at Harvard University

Though I haven’t always agreed with Trump’s public persona, platforms are more important than speeches and style. Bottom line Trump is the embodiment of a raw independent Americanism that is impossible to enfold into a single world government, but he is much hated by utopians, who see the planet in peril and the world without nations. 

I walked the massive crowd the morning of January 6, 2021, all around the 54-acre park known as the Ellipse and the Washington Monument.  Tens of thousands of people came from all over the country and they looked like me–just there to witness history on a decisive day, when many of us knew that previous national icons and notions are likely to change from that day forward.  

The preview of what is in the offing has been demonstrated all summer as public memorials and statues were cast down by people, who likely don’t know or care about the why and how of those historical mementos placed to remind us where we have been so we might know where we are going.  Without a historical compass, one simply walks in circles over the Earth in their time.  As President Wilson said: 

A nation that does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do.

President Woodrow Wilson, What is Progress, 1913

I returned home and began to watch the news feeds.  There was no coverage of the massive number of regular Americans who came to the Ellipse, of the singing and praying, the sense of cordiality and fellowship amid a sea of flags.  There were blue Trump flags, American flags, Gadsden “Don’t tread on me” flags but there were no Rebel flags as I walked the grounds.  True to form, I shouldn’t have been surprised to see the only flag image on an international news feed covering the assembly as that of a man, who appeared to be inside the capitol, carrying a Rebel flag!  

This year we were alerted to cyber invasion by Social Dilemma the documentary that “explores the rise of social media and…its exploitation and manipulation of its users for financial gain through surveillance capitalism and data mining.”  For the first time in history, Big Tech, by artifice with their omnipotent computer presence has gathered intelligence on individual Americans allowing a separate tailor-made news feeds to be designed. Each of us has our “truths” delivered by click and this has most effectively served to divide us as a nation.  

The division goes beyond holding differing solutions to common problems, which has always occupied those who vigorously seek common ground, compromise and ultimately solutions. It goes to molding and then transforming us as a people into something unrecognizable especially to those who believe in the eternal unchangeable truths. 

I write because I am saddened by the reigning media demonization of all who came to our Capitol city as capitol crashers, occupiers, and – yes – worst of all, racists. My motivation was to make the pilgrimage to DC drawn from a deep love of country and the American people, for all those who want to become independent, live at liberty in this “one nation under God” (not man) and aid their fellowman at home and across this World.  

I have fought to remain independent and not interdependent with other nations – to not be blended into something unrecognizable from the history that once powerfully joined a diverse mix of people in one place based on the idea that every human being was valuable no matter how wanting, and that through hard work and industry we could live a life free of tyranny.

I will always appreciate Trump despite the unrelenting bullying he received in our name and for our nation.  As for me, I will miss having a voice among reasonable people who appreciate arguing the point in a thoughtful informed discourse to get at the truth no matter how elusive. 

I concede to the new transformed nation, as the next generation takes on leadership, but one last time I wanted to come to the place that once allowed a small person like me a voice. For this time forward, I, like Solzhenitsyn, will resolve to live my life with integrity and I invite those of you who still long for liberty to join me: Let your credo be this: “Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.”

Negotiating with Time

As Shakespeare said, “parting is such sweet sorrow.” Yes. Farewells can be difficult, but what if you’re good about your position in the queue even if it’s the beginning of the ending?

At 71 years old, I am so good about life at this point and I want to write about the Endgame and how we negotiate with time no matter our age, but if there was ever a time in life to be strategic with the remaining pieces left to us, it is in the endgame. 

Death is often too maudlin for today’s tastes, but instead let us focus on the living of life and its unfathomable riches, on going the distance, finishing well and making an orderly transition of one’s life and affairs. This is done for the benefit of others and one’s own peace of mind and are all part of a life well lived. 

Throughout life we negotiate with time, prioritizing it and deciding how to allocate it right until last moment.  We negotiate with ourselves, others and even God Almighty. Our lives are punctuated by those unforgettable moments along the way until the few pieces remain. 

At the Endgame is where this writing starts but I’d also like to know what you are doing in the Endgame or what you are doing to prepare for it?

As for me, today I own no property having distributed it to heirs, I have my affairs in order and gratefully served as my husband’s midwife to eternity. 

It is time to make plans for life in 2021.  Given that man proposes, but God disposes, I have moved to:

·      Downsize to a small 1000 square foot cottage

·      Build a library in Kentucky to house my husband’s most excellent library of 10,000 history and government books and to travel to speak about the need for the library.

·      Finish the Vietnam book my husband started, but for whom time ran out.

·      Travel with my newly purchased 25’ RV Mercedes diesel Sprinter wherever possible unencumbered by pandemic lockdowns;

·      Travel to England, my mother’s home where I have relatives never met;

·      Purchase a stationary bike in order to exercise maskless;

·      Work a global networking marketing business that I can operate from my mobile phone wherever there is a WiFi connection.

I always tell my oldest grandchild, I’ve told all of them really, I hope to dance at their weddings and that could happen before I hit my eighties.  Hopefully I’ll be given the time.  Oh Lord, I promise to use it wisely.  

Just as life begins with a laborious struggle, we find relief in life’s first breath and until the last breath on this side of eternity, I, like my precious husband, the Colonel, I am never giving – in or up – on life.  Thanks to him for focusing me on the “Endgame.”  He often asked me, “what will we do in the Endgame?”

Well, I am here at the great make it or break it.  I have received good guidance for the Endgame, so let’s compare notes! 

I hope you’ll join me in “The Endgame.”
