My American dream is to have the U.S. Congress designate May 20th annually as National Maritime Literature Day. maritimeliterature.com Who supports maritime literature? Authors, book publishers, magazines, sailors, mariners, history teachers, U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard members, politicians, etc. MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND CONTACT ALL WASHINGTON DC POLITICIANS. I grew up with Mutiny on the Bounty, Treasure Island, Kon Tiki, Dove, and other great stories. The Lobster Chronicles, Raising La Belle, A Sailor's History of the U.S. Navy, The Proving Ground, Into the Abyss, Hungry Ocean, The Perfect Storm and others educated me about our maritime culture and history. Stimulate a student's mind by promoting this idea. You can do this America! THANK YOU!
