Our Mission

Most people today don’t realize it. They don’t understand that we are perched on the shoulders of giants. Shoulders that have shaped our culture, our myths, and our literature. Shoulders that are the very foundations of western civilization. They look at their iPads and forget that the view from where we stand is because of all those who came before us. And while the vista from our elevated position is wonderful, we need to take a moment to appreciate and learn where we came from.
