Patriot Week recognized nationwide

Oakland County, MI (September 13, 2015) – Statewide Patriot Week proclamations have been passed throughout the nation, including by the Governors of Arizona, New Mexico, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. It has been locally recognized by the Michigan Legislature, counties such as Wayne County and Oakland County; and municipalities like Bloomfield Township, Farmington Hills, and Rochester Hills. Patriot Week was co-created by Oakland County Circuit Judge Michael Warren and his then-10-year old daughter Leah.

“We really appreciate the breadth of leadership,” said Leah Warren (now 17 years old). “Patriot Week excites students and citizens in general to learn about – and celebrate – what makes America the greatest nation in world history.”
“All Americans need to take time to remember what keeps us free, and Patriot Week is vital to renewing the American spirit,” remarked Judge Warren. “If we are to maintain our liberty in a free republic, our citizens must have a deeply rooted understanding of our Constitution, its generating history, and its underlying First Principles. Approval of these resolutions is an important step in maintaining our free republic.”

Patriot Week renews America’s spirit by celebrating the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history.

Patriot Week is anchored by the key dates of September 11 (the anniversary of the terrorist’s attacks) and September 17 (Constitution Day, the anniversary of when the United States Constitution was signed).
The week is celebrated in Michigan and across the country in K-12 schools, colleges, law schools, libraries, community organizations, government agencies, and others.

Upcoming Patriot Week events open to the public include a Constitution Day Commemoration - Law Enforcement Appreciation through Prayer program, a rule of law bus tour, a Patriot Festival, and others. Several public events have already occurred.
