We've run out of snooze buttons. Now, we are on the edge of not just being abruptly aroused from slumber, but being shoved out of bed onto the cold hard floor of reality, laying there flat on our face wondering what in the 'sam hill' happened while we were sleeping.
I don't know how the near future will play out, but it will come and I pray we meet it in a way that honors our forefathers and the thousands of patriots who fought and died for this country. It falls upon every generation to refresh, re-sacrifice and re-strengthen the commitment to every element that made and maintains our great country. Our constitution was not intended as a set of side-note guidelines. Our government is unbalanced and tone deaf: the power base is no longer the people. It is time to prune, making government smaller and the people's voice what it ought to be...loud and clear and the dominating force.
The U.S.A. is populated with beautifully framed people, a direct result of a free society. I hope that our citizenry will once again rise to the challenge of preserving a country that builds the kind of human beings that lead a world in dire need of ethics rich leadership.
