Today is a special day in many of our lives. Those of us of the age who can remember probably know the time and place we were when we found our country under open attack by enemies of everything our Founders created.
Today many public officials literally are pushing God out of the public ceremonies as to not inflame our sensitive cultural landscape. This is a travesty, because no matter who you are and what faith you practiced on that day when you learned the news you probably said “Oh my God what is happening?!” Then if you were like millions of us in the country we got on our knees, filled churches beyond capacity and prayed to God for those who suffered, those who so gallantly reacted to save lives, and now those who respond in our protection of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Today I ask that each of you fly the flag and attend church with others. We should be asking God for mercy on us, those who perished and those who live as the one standing between the darkness and the light.
Today’s heroes guard the frontier against evil, build cities, grow crops to feed us, and raise children in light of Christ. Without any of these heroes we are lost as both a country and civilization.
Uniformed or not, obviously each citizen has a role as “one who stands between the darkness and the light.” None of us are off the hook for ensuring the survival of our experiment of government by the people, for the people and of the people.
God Bless America!
Let us all try to earn that blessing each and everyday!
