Certainly education is the key! But know that you have that knowledge what are you going to do with it?
In the new book “The Anonymous Patriot,” international author Steven Jaynes shows you what two men do with that knowledge?
The first character your introduced to is Salih. Salih is from Khazestan, his family struggling to survive the harsh conditions of the Arabian Dessert and the chaos that surrounds them. And yet he is taught that somewhere there is peace and freedom by his father.
On the other side of the world a young man named Dean makes decisions that steers him to become a contractor for the Military. The obstacles he faces are supported by knowledge he obtain about his forefathers and their service, most of which were never known to the general populace, or written in history books.
In a speech Dean gives: “Real patriots have not necessarily been popular at the time of their most enduring achievements.” … “there has been a long line of patriots that have sacrificed dearly in terms of their own resources and their very lives. The efforts by the previous generations for establishing liberty for all of us is an enduring priceless gift not only to millions of Americans but also continues to provide the hope and realization of individual freedoms for billions of humans all over the world.”
The Anonymous Patriot shows us what the average person can become. It helps us identify patriots when we see their acts.
In past American history we used to speak of the military with pride and honor. The sacrifice of life in protecting our country was reverenced. Our troops in this generation desperately need that! They need to know that they are not forgotten, that their lives are not given in vain. This book brings that feeling back!
As civilians we can do more than just go to meetings and study the Constitution. We have obligation to stand up for our freedoms at home. We have to let our troops know that while they are away, we have their backs and that we are fighting in a more civil manner for our freedoms. Our troops need to see that contrast. This book teaches that!
The lives of Salih and Dean do end up intertwined and both have to make decisions that will affect their own lives and the lives of many. Their decisions will capture your attention, be thought provoking, and instill a compassion for freedom! I encourage you to read “The Anonymous Patriot.”
