I just need to share my thoughts with you all this morning. I've been watching the news all morning and everything I've seen about our domestic safety is so very disturbing. Quoting: Earth Cries
We don't have enough money to send a carrier to the Persian Gulf, we don't have enough money to train 80% of our troops, Obama wants to announce a huge draw-down of troops in Afghanistan, Obama wants to cut our nukes by 1/3 just as North Korea test a viable nuke device. China and Russia are increasing their military and nuclear power while ours is falling to dangerously low levels.
I could go on, but you get what I'm talking about. People, I fear for the future of our country and I am afraid.
EC, I've been thinking about your post and I hope my answer will make sense.
There truly is nothing new under the sun. All of these things happening today have happened in some shape or form, before. I agree that it seems to be more serious today, but I keep thinking of a couple of sayings. The first, I will paraphrase. All it takes for evil to prevail, is for good people to do nothing. We know there are many people doing exactly that, nothing. I know of many who are doing a great deal. YOU are one of those people. You are not allowing the troubles at the sinkhole dissappear from view. You make us all aware, every day. MM and the rest make us aware of the happenings that could/probably will lead us to war. Every day. Many people around the world have drawn their line and are standing.
The other saying is one we had to type in class for timings. I don't think they do that anymore, but those of us that learned how to type on typewriters will remember this sentence. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Our country isn't just the government. I suggest it never was. Our country is the people. Just because the majority of the news is about sheeple, doesn't make it true. Why do you think the media only tells us about them? It's a pysop. They want us to believe there is nothing good left of our country. There is, just look around at the people you know. Are THEY worth saving? Of course they are. We have to save as many as possible.
Goodness, kindness, honor and courage have NOT dissappeared. It is and will be harder to find, but it is there. I think it's up to us to recognize it and encourage it to grow. If we watch the MSM and believe everything they tell us, they win and we fail. We can NEVER let that happen. We may never know the seeds we plant with the stand we take. People ARE watching and it's not always a bad thing. We will get weary, but we can't give up.
