Michigan Patriot Week passes in the Senate and House; Oakland and Macomb counties

It was announced today via press release that the State Senate joined the State House’s action from early this month and designated September 11-17, 2011 as Michigan Patriot Week. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley also designated Patriot Week in their respective states. Likewise, the County Commissions of Oakland and Macomb Counties also recently proclaimed the week.  Patriot Week was co-created by Oakland County Circuit Judge Michael Warren and his now 15-year old daughter Leah.

“We really appreciate the breadth of leadership,” said Leah Warren. “Patriot Week excites students and citizens in general to learn about – and celebrate – what makes America the greatest nation in world history.”
“All Americans need to take time to remember what keeps us free, and Patriot Week is vital to renewing the American spirit.” Remarked Judge Warren. “If we are to maintain our liberty in a free republic, our citizens must have a deeply rooted understanding of our Constitution, its generating history, and its underlying First Principles. Approval of  these resolutions is an important step in maintaining our free republic.”
Patriot Week renews America’s spirit by celebrating the First PrinciplesFounding Fathers and other Patriotsvital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history. Patriot Week is anchored by the key dates of September 11 (the anniversary of the terrorist’s attacks) and September 17 (Constitution Day, the anniversary of when the United States Constitution was signed).
