First, Shalom All! I've been watching the conventions and listening to all the rhetoric and I've come to at least one conclusion thus far. These newer generations have no idea of their own history. What is going on in the public schools these days? Are they not teaching history at all? I know that civics is not being taught--G-D forbid some young person might know his/her rights as an American or pride in being an American! I here some blacks calling other blacks "uncle Tom" as if it that is an insult?! Maybe somebody nowadays should read Ms. Stowe's book. Tom not some weak kneed, weak minded or weak moraled person. To the contrary, in the book, Tom was beaten to death because he would not divulge the whereabouts of run away slaves. Tom depended on and believed in G-D! Tom (much like Yeshuah (Jesus)), gave his life so that other might be delivered.
Senator Rand Paul was recently physically attacked a third time. This time for attending the RNC convention in Washington, DC. The crowd kept demanding the Sen Paul "say her name" referring to Breonna Taylor, the 26 year old who was tragically shot & killed by police in a 'no knock raid'. Sen Paul is the author of the "Breonna Taylor bill" written to stop no knock raids.
I have noticed that since we took prayer out of our schools, each generation has gotten a little worse. Then we started abridging our history courses little by little until kids no longer understand how great this country really is. When I was a youngster I attended public school in Chicago where I grew up. Everyday when I walked into that building I heard at least 1/2 dozen different languages being spoken in the halls on the way to my classroom. I remember that when that bell rang to start the day--BOOM--everybody spoke English! It was called pride in being American! We all stood and recited the Pledge and then sang the National Anthem. We learned that America was world renown as the "melting pot". That meant that no matter where you came from, you could come here and be part of the American Family! When you took your oath and became a citizen, YOU WERE THEN AN AMERICAN CITIZEN with all the rights of any other AMERICAN! Besides Israel, where else in the world can you do that?
The only way that we can save our nation is to get involved and stay involved! It is time now for all good men (and women), to come to the aid of our country.
Blessings and Shalom,
