TODAY, TOMORROW, TOGETHER
Some of us ole vets can still remember the disastrous Pearl Harbor as vividly as
9/11, and now we have an unforeseen deadly virus enemy upon us. During PH,
WWII and 9/11, we Americans of all ages pulled together, on what we called
"the home front," to make life easier for all. We were in it together, we had to
unite together. Now even with fighting a contagious virus, we can still
overcome together. We are patriots bonded to form a strong nation We of
every faith and origin learned how to work and fight together. Our
togetherness was so bull-proof and pig-tight we could hardly breathe. Back in
the 40's, even kids saved money to buy war stamps. If we saved $18.75, we
bought a war bond, which government promised in 10 years to give us a
walloping $25. We even collected tin cans an newspapers to scrap for cash.
Today the grocery shelves seem bare, but looking back on our food supply
then, we could still walk into a Woolworth's lunch counter and buy a meal for 25
cents. All families were issued ration cards to control sugar, coffee and
gasoline. What are we short today, toilet paper, go figure?
We know that we’re better than our current politics, for we are in danger of
tearing ourselves at the seams Are we going to rely on political correctness, or
Biblical faithfulness to solve this problem. We are told to be strong in the Lord
with his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that we can take a stand
against the devil’s schemes, because our struggle is not against flesh and
blood, but against the powers of the dark world (virus). The armor of God is a
Biblical metaphor to remind us about the reality of spiritual battle and describes
the protection available to us. We need to put on that armour and be strong
patriots, united, not divided. You are what matters. You, awake, is the enemies
greatest fear. The hour of decision has come? We have strength for today,
and a bright hope for tomorrow. It's flags out, and flags up. It’s ground-kissing
time in America. With the help of Almighty God, let us strive to finish the work
we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds in a spirit of unity (E Pluribus Unum).
To change our nation we must pray. Prayer is the most powerful force in the
world. Pray that our land will be healed of this virus.
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her,
Through the night with the light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies,
to the oceans white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home
