So many of us are working hard to bring back the full liberty we once had so future generations can experience it. Matthew Perdie, however, is taking it one step further– well, maybe more like a few thousand steps further. Perdie Across America is “the epic story of one man’s walk to restore independence.” He has taken on the incredible task of walking across the United States in order to alert as many people as possible to the very real dangers threatening our liberty– and he’s documenting his walk across America so we can take the journey with him!
Chapter One of Perdie Across America, called “The Integrity of Principle”, begins Perdie’s journey on June 22nd, 2009 in Long Island, New York. In it he speaks about the importance of integrity and why we must restore it if we hope to find success again. Perdie also exemplifies integrity in his journey. Something as simple as getting a ride across a busy bridge, he says, would be sacrificing his integrity and mission to walk every step of his journey. If he rode across the bridge, he wouldn’t have actually walked every step as he said he would. He walked across that bridge, in and out of traffic, in order to keep his promise to himself and to his country. That’s how strong his dedication is.
The intent of Perdie Across America is to “provoke questioning of the dangers of massive government expansion, while acknowledging the principles and virtuous behavior that are necessary for the survival of a free Constitutional Republic.” Without principles, America as we know it does not exist. We have to keep principles in high esteem if we want to remain that “shining city on a hill.” Perdie places emphasis on the fact that we must restore our principles. He explains that without principles such as integrity, we will continue this downward spiral and our free-market, prosperous society can and will never return.
Matthew Perdie is a true American patriot. He is taking action against the attacks on integrity and principles in America at a time when many seem to be encouraging them. Kudos to him for taking a stand! Chapter One of Perdie Across America will be released on June 12th.
