If We Had More Men Like Horatio Bunce

This speech by Davey Crocket is one of the best things I’ve ever read.

As Spunky said in her post “Not Yours To Give”, “This speech is worth re-reading every once in a while just to remind us of how it all is really supposed to work.”

Tim Sweetman


Tim Sweetman is a young writer, blogger, and student who lives near our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. He has been much more widely known by his “code-name,” Agent Tim. This name also served as the name of his popular blog, which received over 750,000 visits between 2005 to 2007. In 2005, he quickly rose to become a leading teenage spokesperson and cultural critic within the booming blogosphere, taking on issues such as MySpace, alcohol, homeschooling, pride, racism, tolerance, and other topics relating to our culture today. His blog has come to the attention of people such as Albert Mohler, C.J. Mahaney, Alex and Brett Harris, and La Shawn Barber. Tim’s written work has appeared in Lifeway’s Living With Teenagers (February 2012), Lookout Magazine, FUSION Magazine, The Brink Online, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Virtue Magazine, Regenerate Our Culture Online Magazine, and on many other blogs and websites across the internet like Marry Well and the Lies Young Women Believe Blog. He has also been featured in WORLD Magazine, The Towers Magazine, and Maryland Newsline. He is scheduled to have an article appear in Veritas Magazine this December. Most recently, his work can be found on Focus on the Family’s Boundless Webzine. His personal interests include writing (surprise!) and sports, both watching and playing. He is a die-hard Washington Redskins fan.

  1. Tim,

    I had not read that before. Thanks for sharing that for us, and for me. I had looked at it that way before, but it never struck me as important. Now, like Colonel Crockett, I undestand.



  2. Agent Tim I have never heard of you, but as far as I can see you’re a man with integrity who holds to truth’s teachings. I’m currently writing a report on Horatio Bunce; whose words pierced my soul, and was indeed wisdom from the Lord Almighty. If you have any research information on him(Horatio Bunce)I would be quite excited to hear it for i’m having difficulty in finding any information at all. I’m also interested about your website, and what your goal is on it.
