Sweet Land of Liberty

“Our country ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty...” These words at the beginning of one of our beloved patriotic anthems speak about glorious attributes that define the United States of America. Some of us belt out the lyrics with gusto or reverence. Others mindlessly mouth the words and are ignorant of their significance.

Our constitution, brought into being by the hope, dedication, and sacrifice of our founding fathers, is in danger. The best system of government up to now is in danger. Our society is on a downhill slide, following the course of every nation that has dared to defy timeless principles and biblical values.

What can we do to stem the tide? There are a number of options, including:

1. Work with other concerned individuals to put fine political candidates in office.

2. Call or write our current representatives and express our concerns.

3. Share our views in letters to the editor and encourage others to do the same. 

4. Get involved in the school board and/or city council.

5. Start a discussion group to share information.

6. Pray

We can make a difference. With God's help, it is not too late get America back on the right path.
