The American’s Creed

From 1938 – 1942, my grandmother, Edith Speights, worked the assembly line at General Motors Corporation – The Allison Division building motors for aircraft in World War II. On the back of her award was the American’s Creed (below):

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, who’s just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes,

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

WM. Tyler Page (1942)

Happily married, grandpa with strong Conservative, Christian, Patriotic beliefs. Retired military and govt servant. Believe in Manners, Morals and courtesy. I love when someone takes the “initiative”, works hard and thinks for themselves. They become problem solvers and examples. I strive to be that person.
