Nine years ago our country found itself in the midst of a visible fight for life.
We became dependant on each other as a nation. People turned their trust towards firefighters, and policemen, and politicians, and in a very broad sense, to a convenient "God".
Suddenly everyone got all religious and turned to a "higher power" who could bless our nation again. But, as always happens after a tragedy, days go by, "normal" returns- albeight a new normal- and life resumes where it left off. A need for that "higher power" subsided. Every year there is a sense of quiet remembrance of the tragedy, a short return to the honoring of that "higher power"..and then back to resuming normal life. In between those yearly remembrances we play the blame-game...trying to figure out which responsible party the finger should be pointed at. And we debate the ways in which we will be most protected as a country...to war or not to war, etc.
In a perfect world....
"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence.
In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer
[take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world.
[I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]"
*To those who have our back, who fight the hard fight because we've turned our backs on Truth...
THANK YOU...your sacrifice does not go unnoticed.
