During Patriot Week, We Remember America’s Founding. Here’s How to Join the Celebration

Judge Michael Warren felt conviction after his daughter asked him why there wasn't a specific time each year dedicated to remembering American history and celebrating the nation's founding. 

"We need to start a new celebration for America," Leah, only 10 at the time, told her father.

Warren, a judge on the 6th Circuit Court in Oakland CountyMichigan, says he determined that he couldn't complain about that lack and then not do anything about it.

"So we decided to be audacious and to do a week," he recalls.

In 2012, father and daughter formally co-founded Patriot Week. Every Sept. 11-17, they invite all Americans to join them in remembering the patriots who founded our country, the documents that established our government, and the history we must never forget. 

Warren joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share the history of Patriot Week and the resources offered by their website for families, schools, and communities to take part in the celebration. 

Also on today’s show, we read your letters to the editor and share a good news story about a police officer who saved nine lives during her first year of service.
