I’m proud to be an American! Always have been, always will be. We’re not perfect, but we certainly are the best. When the National Anthem is played, I stand with hand over heart. We’ve seen athletes refusing to stand, daring to make a point, with a total disregard for the men and women who fought to allow that flag to stand. These actions are trickling down to many of our youth, who will follow suit. I read today of, yet another murder of one of our police officers. This is becoming all too frequent, out of control, actually. Even our nation’s “leaders” are causing more of a divide instead of bringing us together. United we stand, divided...! As one of our founding fathers said, “We must indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately”. We are a country in much need of God’s hand of blessing.
It’s a new day and a fresh start. No matter your political persuasion, we need to see ourselves as “one nation under God”. Fellow Americans, we have a NEW administration. It’s time to quit whining about it and move forward! In other words, get over yourself and start putting the wellbeing of our nation first and not your personal agenda. We need a return to old-fashioned patriotism. A return to the ways of God-honoring, loyal, hardworking people who realize how blessed we are. A return to serious prayer for God’s continued blessings on us. To whom much is given, much is required.
