Letter of the Day

It is time to take a stand

Published:   |   Updated: June 9, 2014 at 06:54 AM

It brings me great heartache to read so many letters in the Views section and see the confirmation of how far our nation has fallen.

What happened to our Founding Father’s sacrifices for the Constitution? Our Biblical Commandments? These were put into place for reasons.

Battles were not fought and lives were not sacrificed so we could arrive where we are today — political corruption, greed, ignorance, immorality and the loss of love and respect for our country.

It was said, “United we stand; divided we fall.” There seems to be much dividing going on. It is time to take a stand and start leading our country back to the real American meaning of “God and country:”

“A nation of patriotic citizens who dedicate themselves to protecting and defending ‘America the Beautiful’ and our basic human freedom from tyranny and oppression as well as showing our respect for God by protecting all creation.” (Godandcountry.org).

We need Americans who can lead and proudly place their right hands over their heart, honor ethics, integrity and courage, and stand together to uphold our Constitution and Bill of Rights that define “America the Beautiful.”

Until then, God bless America.
