MEMORIAL DAY WAS ORIGINATED FOR HEALING…
BRINGING A NATION BACK TOGETHER…
BRINGING AMERICA HOME©
WHERE ARE WE TODAY IN THIS HEALING?
The original Memorial Day – Decoration Day, was initiated by our Southern women. Through pain and loss they made a humble and valiant effort to honor the fallen soldiers both the blue and the gray. The emotional climate of this nation back then was solemn and divided. While one side claimed victory in the war, all truly lost; families torn apart, properties and homes destroyed…lives and livelihoods displaced and a nation of people full of distrust, prejudices and pain.
While “we’ve come along way baby” since that first Decoration Day, honoring those who sacrificed their lives for home and country, it seems we’re slipping back into a climate of pain, distrust, jealousies and prejudice attitudes.
Prejudices will always be a part of this old world but America is a nation that has battled through such things and has made huge steps forward for equality… “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.” Our attitude in this and declaring, “…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” looks beyond color, ethnicity and wealth… this declarations doesn’t allow for “stations and classes.”
Because of the prejudices in our leadership today, I’m here to tell you that…
YES… WE HAVE CLIMATE CHANGE… AND YES, IT IS MAN MADE!
But this climate change is…
Not from the heating & cooling systems…
Not from factory emission…
Not from CO2
Not from the vehicles driven
Not from gassy cows grazing
The climate change in America today is driven by leftwing liberals, who do not believe in liberty… The climate change in America today is driven by progressives who believe they can push hard enough and scream loud enough to make most of us believe we are guilty of all that is wrong in this nation – past and present.
The climate change in America today is driven by those who seek power and to do this they must make you slaves – make you pay – keep you confused and hidden from the truth. (remember Al Gore said any who do not believe in Global Warming should be punished)
The climate change in America today… is manmade!
… there is hope, and it isn’t in rioting and finger pointing and blaming others…
…there is hope in the God the leaders want you to forget and never speak of…
…there is hope in the sacrifice of those who went before us to pave this nation…
This climate change is ugly and a huge threat to American lives and liberty, Obama has that correct. But this climate change has nothing to do with weather temperatures, rainfall or droughts… and everything to do with the hearts of the people: This climate change had caused a flooding of control of the people by restrictions, regulations and taxes perpetrated by men in government over the citizens. The drought is the loss of liberty and freedom – FROM the people, leaving citizens feeling desperate and downtrodden.
Government leaders are changing the climate of America. People are feeling dependent and desperate. Businesses find it beyond difficult to turn a profit. Business owners are afraid to make decisions. People are in fear of how they speak, how the live their faith or raise their children.
Thomas Jefferson said, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
Where does that leave us today? This climate change must be ended…
WE THE PEOPLE MUST END IT!
Oh yes… it is a cycle in the climate of attitudes, that is true…
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”
I implore you to recognize TRUTH
TRUTH… in climate change – the change in this nation that has brought tyranny, attitudes of despair – discouragement and bondage to WE THE PEOPLE
What kind of freedom do we have? We are told it is a choice to kill an unborn child – we pay a large fine if you destroy (even accidentally) and unborn eagle… We are told we do not have a choice in our faith – if it means standing against “same-sex” marriage. We are told we own our land YET we are not free to use it’s natural resources.
YOUR ARE FREE
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR RESOURCES
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR EDUCATION
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR CURRENCY
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR INTERNET
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR MILITARY
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR JUSTICE
AS LONG AS YOU CONTROL YOUR LAND
As Americans, we are family! I care not about your color – how tall or short you are… I care not about your religion ~ as long you do not believe murder to be a part of it… OR try to force it upon me…you (and me) should be free to our faith without government intrusion and without persecution for living that faith.
MEMORIAL WEEKEND… WE REMEMBER THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US… WE REMEMBER OUR FALLEN AND THOSE WHO DID SERVE AND THOSE WHO NOW SERVE!
There is no doubt we have dark moments in the history of our country – JUST as all other nations, however it is time for us to rise above… Can we? Will we?
WILL AMERICANS CHANGE THE CLIMATE OR OUR ATTITUDES?
CAN WE NOW WAKE UP AND RISE UP TO THE CHALLENGE???
THE SAME CHALLENGE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FACED???
WILL WE BE THE BRAVE, WHO FIGHT TYRANNY AND PRESERVE LIBERTY FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS OF THIS NATION???
Alexis de Tocqueville state, “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.”
It’s time for us to be that people again. Those who have the climate of attitude to repair the pain, take back the liberty and give hope to the future.
WILL WE CHANGE THE CLIMATE… REPAIR OUR FAULTS AND
BRING AMERICA HOME©
Have a wonderful Memorial Day! Be sure to take a moment of silence and remember those who protect us now and those who laid down their lives for Freedom and Liberty.
