With the blessings of another day upon us it seems only logical to take time out and weigh the good and beautiful against the bad and ugly. Our nation is at war. There are many people here in the U.S. who do not believe we have a real, determined enemy that would do anything,ANYTHING to take us down. These ostriches are willing to bet all of our lives on their foolhardy notion that this really isn't a fight to the death. As much as I hate the idea of war and bloodshed, throughout the course of history there have been times necessary for the good God-loving peaceful countries in this world to stand up and crush whatever evil and violent threats come near to destroying their cocoon of perceived security. As long as we live in a fallen world we will never EVER have true world peace. It is most unfortunate that we have to raise our children into such a system. But that is where we are now. Reality, being what it is demands something be done. Waiting around for an attack will not strengthen our resolve or diminish these threats. Some people get tired of hearing, or thinking about it,I too am tired of it. That being said , if our nation is to survive we must deal with ALL the threats to our great country. To those whom much is given much is required, our nation has been so blessed by God it is required of us to do God's will, or suffer whatever consequences he sees fit.
