Our country is in turmoil because we have forgotten the best potential of Me is We.!
I have been in 90 countries and even with our flaws, none compare to the USA. Ronald Regan said, “No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
Abraham Lincoln profoundly stated, “ America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedom, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Famous historian Arnold Toynbee supports what Lincoln said when he stated, “ All great civilizations rise and fall and that an autopsy would show they committed suicide.”
Albert Einstein considered by many as one of the most brilliant men in history gave us a game plan to follow when he said, “ The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
My dear friend Doctor Harry Edwards said, “Silence has always been evils greatest ally.” I witnessed that at Auschwitz where millions were annihilated and I read on a plaque, “ The road to Auschwitz was built by hatred but paved with indifference and apathy.”
We need to instantly wake up to the division in our country or we will crumble. 19 of 21 notable civilizations died from conquest from within and not by conquest from without. Our nation will be transformed when mankind returns to God and his purpose for us. If we are not capable getting along with each other, then we are not capable of having a relationship with God. So, the question in our journey of life is not whether God can bring peace into the world. The question is: CAN WE? God says that if we can build the kind of relationship with each other where we enter into a covenant to belong to each other and be involved with each other in pursuing our goals together—that we are unstoppable.
The average age of the world’s greatest democratic nations has been 200 years. Our country is now 246 years old, so we better quit partisan politics and do what is best for our nation. If we do not immediately do this, what British historian Thomas Macaulay warned us 150 years ago will happen. He said, “ Your nation will be destroyed in the 20th century as Rome was in the 5th century. But the Huns and Vandals which will destroy you will come from within, from your own institutions.”
We must unite now or we are destined to fail ! Blessings to you and I wish you peace, love, wisdom, courage happiness and true success.
