Tell me, Dad, What Was It Like?

“If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.”

George Washington, The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources 1745-1799 Volume 39 (General Index O-Z List of Letters) – Leather Bound

America – what happened to our resolve and ability to find solutions to our problems? Where has our enthusiasm for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, gone? What happened to our desire and initiative? Why have we become such a divided nation, aren’t we all Americans, one nation under God indivisible? Maybe that’s the reason, we no longer seem to be under God…instead many are considering themselves above God and no longer believe in Him.

Have we, as a nation, lost our self respect?  We do not follow through with our ultimatums anymore they’re just meaningless words spewing forth from an unresolved nation.  We have become a nation of sheep being led to the slaughter.

America had a dream, Dad?  Tell me about that time…..
