History- Principles and Values

The 912 Project

On September 11th, 2001 we were in shock and fear. On September 12th, 2001 we came together as Americans with politics, race, and religion set aside.

We wanted to know we weren't alone so we renewed our commitments to our families, our friends and our nieghbors.

We started forming small groups that met at kitchen tables, libraries and coffee shops to discuss current events, the future of our children, our grandchildren, and America as we knew and loved it.
We agreed on a set of principles and values that freedom itself is centered around and that is based on the common laws of God and nature. These values and principles were derived from The 5000 Year Leap; a volume of writings of our founding architects. To signify the way America came together on 9-12-01, nine principles and 12 values were selected from those writings.

We continue today; meeting, discussing our future, supporting the principles of freedom such as limited government that works for us, fiscal and personal responsibility, faith, hope, and charity. These are the elements of the formula that made America the most prosperous, generous nation on Earth.

We will continue to fulfill the responsibility of protecting that freedom and preserving and restoring the only place on Earth it still exists. We do this for the next, and all future generations of Americans. We are The 912 Project and if you agree with at least seven of the nine principles, please join us as we continue to preserve, protect and restore the freedoms that we were born with.
