This morning at a prayer breakfast former Congressman Ray LaHood says that if American’s adhere to common principals the country will continue to thrive.
LaHood evoked the words of Thomas Jefferson to make the point that extraordinary people can lead exemplary lives in simple ways. And if you choose to make your community better you will keep America great.
LaHood adds common everyday actions are what’s needed to keep the country on the right path.
LaHood notes that basic values of everyday life and work are important. He says it’s time to build on traditional values of hard work, a faith in god and commitment to family.
