Kirk Cameron has a lot to say these days and I am thanking him for it! I am a huge fan of his even though he is totally cheesy — but it’s an endearing cheese, is it not! 😉
The “Growing Pains” actor, who is most recognized as an Evangelical speaker, has made a documentary film exploring the problems that exist in America today while searching for ways we can return to ” America’s national treasure” — the roots that once made this nation so great.
“As I look around I get this sinking feeling that we’re off track, that there’s something sick in the soul of our country,” Cameron states in the film. “I examine the fruit that’s hanging on the tree of America and I can see that it’s rotting. And that concerns me deeply.”
Cameron has six kids of his own ( that is a”monumental” undertaking on its own!) He regards in the film his fears of handing this “rotting fruit” over to his children.
“Time is flying by too quickly and our children‘s futures won’t wait. We’ve got to do something now,” Cameron proclaims in the film.
Cameron states in a video on his facebook page, ” I decided to travel across the U.S. and Europe to discover the true national treasure of America. I wanted to find out who the people were who built this country — the heroic men and women who sacrificed everything to be free…This is my project, but it’s about all of us. It’s about our kids and securing a monumental future for them. How do we teach them the truths, both internally and externally for the world that they live in and secure their future.
I really hope this movie takes off. I hope it does exactly what Cameron desires it to do, which is motivate and inspire us to take our country back to the start. On March 27th, theaters across the country will be showing a special premiere of the film, so go to the website http://www.monumentalmovie.com/ for information on tix and invite everyone you know to come watch it with you!
