For One Beautiful Day

For one beautiful, inspiring week dedicated to the glory of God, thousands of Americans stopped to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord and His many kind providences associated with the founding of our nation at Jamestown four hundred years ago. These families came to do what our government officials said should not be done - "celebrate"! And they did so with enthusiasm and gusto. The following quotes - taken from event organizers, participants, adults, children, and onlookers - is provided to offer you the personal insights of those who not only celebrated history, but became part of it. Each quote is placed within the context of a key observation about the significance of the Jamestown Quadricentennial.
