Millions live free because of George Washington. This homeschooler and statesman transformed the world, setting the course for freedom and away from tyranny. Host Mike Smith concludes his discussion on George Washington’s legacy. That’s on today’s Home School Heartbeat

Mike Smith:
This week we have been discussing one of America’s greatest homeschoolers—George Washington. The successful founding of America was a miracle. Never in history had the world witnessed a genuinely free and republican form of government. America would indeed be a great experiment in self-government.

Without Washington, the Revolution would have failed, either on the battlefield or at the constitutional convention. Washington was the glue that held the army together and the only figure who could keep the convention from breaking apart.

The new country would face many challenges and struggles, but Washington had given the nation a free government based on Christian principles and the ability of that government to adjust to new circumstances.

It is impossible to determine how the world would look if George Washington had not succeeded in his endeavor.

Many nations have tried alternate forms of government—with little success. America has spread the principles of freedom across the globe. Is there a viable alternative to the republican form of government in the 21st century?

Washington led the way, and today, Americans owe their freedom to the efforts of our Founding Fathers and to this man who diligently studied and learned the truths of life at home.

And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
