Are you a veteran? Do you know a veteran? I'm a staunch supporter of the noble men and women who sacrifice parts of their lives and sometimes their lives for this country.
Does our country as a whole honor them? Sadly, no. There are special interests that feel much more support than veterans. I won't dig into those interests or the reason they are more popular than those who would give their lives for us.
I love this country and the heart of the people. However, the leadership does not reflect that heart, and they will not make decisions that are for the best of the country. Instead they want tolerance which is thinly veiled appeasement, and they continue to pander to the special interests.
God asks us to pray for our leaders, and at the same time, there is 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
We need to get back to prayer, humility and repentance. The subject of my first novel, American Anthem, is exactly that. Take a look at it at Amazon.com today.
