This is not going to be the kind of blog you are thinking about right now, so, please read it all before you start calling me.
Often I wonder what happened to Americans and America. Not all that long ago, I remember when it was considered the minimum standard of acceptable behaviour:
More often than not, today I see the standard of behaviour, conversation, conduct, accountability, and desire to succeed has dropped to such a level that we want others to be all that they can be but not WE, OURSELVES"This is a life-long process not some point that we have arrived on the coat tails of our forefathers and now we can coast. If we are coasting, it is going downhill at a high rate of speed.
YOUR LIFE WAS YOUR MESSAGE not some Eulogy at the end of your journey, spoken with a smirk by someone who would not have been proud and pleased with you before you passed.
We really need to get back to the basics and start using God-given common sense in our lives, our government, our laws, our applications, and our expectations.
I heard a comment the other day where someone said "they are dead and just don't know it yet." Well before America is dead, we need to AWAKEN and return to the principles and practices that made us great as a people, as a country, as a nation. We need to leave this nation GREATER and BETTER than we received it for those who come after us so that they can build an even Greater nation, Greater future, and Greater people than came before them. But it starts with me, mine, and how that is applied to everything around us. If me and mine get to be bigger and more important that we and our or at the expense, in any manner, then me and mine are smaller and insignificant in the long run. Truly GREAT men and women were humble, not boastful, or self-seeking but giving and forthright in all they did.
May WE return to the basics and become once again that Nation committed to those principles and practices that made us GREAT and it starts with me and mine....
