Bend, Oregon (Ammoland.Com) –Kristy Titus, NRA Certified Instructor and Cabela’s Ambassador, has been on a cross-country journey with two other ladies through the Cascade Mountains to rediscover American values in NRA News’ “I Am Forever” series, hosted by Titus and sponsored by FNH USA. In Episode Three, the ladies must all go solo for several miles to reach the evening’s campsite. It’s their toughest challenge – and their greatest opportunity. The video is now available online at https://goo.gl/3RSyWk.
“I Am Forever” is the story of the American dream, told from three perspectives.
In Episode 3, “Streets Paved With Gold,” Greek immigrant, Nick, continues to recount the stories he'd heard as a child about America's limitless riches: the streets, they said, were paved with gold, and all you had to do was reach down and pick it up! Upon realizing the truth when he finally landed in America, Nick broke out into tears—”They lied to us, mom,” he cried. But now, he says, “It wasn’t a lie at all.” Gold exists in our streets, after all: opportunity.
American culture is at a crisis point. For people to be self-governed, they must first govern themselves. Titus along with Faith, a military wife and stay-at-home-mom and Jessi, a single woman, will be taking on skills they never imagined and will journey across 25 miles of mountain terrain carrying everything they need on their backs. They’ll learn to navigate with map and compass and eventually navigate their own way across the mountains in complete darkness. The ladies also learn other survival skills such as making a raft out of a poncho and making a Swiss Seat harness to rappel 200 feet down a cliff.
Within the current climate of our country, we are at risk of changing into something that will no longer afford the opportunity of the American dream. Now is the time that within our homes, our communities and throughout our country we need to cultivate a climate that grows personal responsibility, self-sufficiency and the value of hard work and determination. That is the climate that has led to the success of our country; we must protect that environment before it is gone. Join these three ladies in their journey for the second season of “I Am Forever.”
