Well, today is the big day - Jamestown Day - the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown on May 14th, 1607.

It's cause for reflection on what has been accomplished in the past 400 years - and what we can hope to accomplish in the future.

Every generation has its own battles to fight. Four hundred years ago, the Jamestown colonists had enormous challenges in building a permanent English colony in the New World.

Four hundred years later, in 2007, our generation faces challenges, one of which is that our own elite disdains our heritage and seeks to undo our nation.

May we be successful in thwarting their plans, and preserving our nation.

If not, there may not be much to celebrate on Jamestown's 500th anniversary.
