Here's a link to an interesting story about Franklin Springs Media and the director of Still Standing - The Stonewall Jackson Story. While many publications, blogs, websites, and other media outlets take great joy in impugning and making fun of our Nation's heroes and mock the values that made this Country great, it is refreshing to know that there are still American companies out there making a positive impact upon our culture. The positive values enforced in Carpenter's films stand in stark contrast to some of the sick perversion being pumped out over the web, by Hollywood, and other pop-culture venues - including "educational" institutions. The use of common four-letter words, crude and base sexual references, and gutter humor that one used to hear only from drunks and prostitutes, is now common fare on TV, over the web, and in public places. Franklin Springs, and companies like it, is providing what used to be the rule rather than the exception. The culture war rages on.
Mr. Carpenter is doing the Lord's work. Godspeed to him and Franklin Springs. I hope I have the privilege of working with him again at some future point.
