My name is Lennart Bilén, and I was born on the Swedish west coast, where the sea once teemed with herring, and the granite cliffs made it a place of spectacular beauty.
The stone was once cut to make victory monuments for the third Reich. The victory never came to pass, but the scars in the cliffs and the memory of the horror of the war remain. I came to the U.S. on a one year extendable contract, fell in love with the new country and decided to stay with my wife and children, all born in the U.S. It was here I got my world view established, and realized that it is all connected, under the guidance of God, and so this blog is intended to be a help to give a reason for the hope that lies within us. I believe in life, liberty and the respect for law. We are also stewards of the environment and must try to leave this world a better place than we entered it.
I have switched my blogging activity to http://lenbilen.com and am no longer making new entries on this blog.
