|In celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of the most horrific events in the history of the United States one cannot help but reflect back on the past decade. We have come a long way, but I am wondering if we have gone the right way.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story When the buildings were collapsing and lives were being destroyed, where were the politicians? Back in "the day,” the politician was a servant of the people, sent to Washington DC to do the people's business. That day is far over and probably never will return. Today, these politicians have the idea that we, the people, are to serve them. After all, they know what's best for us. These politicians, who cannot take care of their own lives or their own business or even pay their own income tax, are fully qualified to take care of our business. Is it any wonder our country is in the mess it's in today? A real hero is someone who puts someone else's welfare ahead of his or her own. They bravely put themselves in harm's way to save someone they may not even know. Perhaps, and I know this thought probably comes from Mars, we ought to stop sending politicians to Washington and start sending heroes. Another kind of hero is needed in our country today. That hero is the one who will pray for our country and ask God to help us get out of the mess were in. The formula for this is found in the Old Testament. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV). In 10 years, we have tried everything else, and everything has failed. Why not try God? Tweet
