President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction…or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Each generation leaves a mark on the world. At Mercury One, we want every generation to be better than the one that came before it.
The future hinges on our ability to learn from the past. It is up to us to educate ourselves to ensure a brighter future. As a community, it’s our responsibility to inspire others to improve, take action, and never quit learning. Equipping our nation with a public-spirited attitude, tactical and critical thinking skills, and an introspective approach to learning is critical for communities to cultivate and care for themselves.
It is our mission to equip, empower, and enlighten this generation and the next to be the future leaders this country deserves. The purchase and preservation of key documents and artifacts allows us to teach the values and principles our great nation was founded upon.
