Welcome to A World Under Fire, a commentary blog that focuses on getting back the American Dream. I am striving to revive my own faith in humanity whilst fighting back against big government GOP players, bigger government progressives, the socialist left, the hate-filled and spiteful liberals, the green-enthusiast tree-huggers, and a society that just doesn’t seem to care. Join me and prepare yourself, because what you do next, could be the thing that matters the most.
We are about to be tested. We’re going to learn what we’re made of; what we’ll do when our beliefs and our characters are in question. We’re soon going to find out if a nation can peacefully live free and survive without the government acting as our conscious.
I always thought we could…
…but can a society so lost in itself find its way back?
I’m not sure anymore.
But I will not give up. I will not lose hope. Because I know the hearts of the Americans that came together after 9/11. I know the hearts of the Americans that came together after Katrina. I know the hearts of the American soldier. I know the hearts of the American people. So I will not give up. I will not lose hope.
This is what is written on my home page. I’d like to break this down over the next couple of weeks to help you understand what I mean; to help you prepare.
The last segment of this home page declaration starts at my statement of uncertainty, and ends with the question, “will you?”
I’m not sure anymore. I’m not sure that our country comes back from the division, hate, bias, race-baiting, religious feuds and personal attacks that we’ve been through in the 21st century. I’m not sure that our days as a world super power aren’t numbered. I’m not sure that I believe “united we stand; divided we fall” is as accurate as it once was. I’m not sure that we’ll recognize the world that our grandkids grow up in. I’m not sure what to think.
I am sure that there are American heroes still out there today. I am sure that there are people who genuinely want the best for their country, their neighbors, and their families. I am sure that the Americans who came together after 9/11 – from coast to coast – will fight to keep this country together. I am sure that the Americans who dropped everything to help in the wake of Katrina will always care for those in need. I am sure that the Americans who fight around the world – and within our own borders – to keep us safe, are the heartbeat of the country. I am sure, that with these people, there is hope.
These Americans inspire me not to lose hope. These Americans inspire me to be better. These Americans inspire me to fight for the only country that can breed these amazing, loving, caring, brave, strong, compassionate people I call American Patriots.
Despite the turmoil this country is in, there is still nowhere else on earth I would rather live. We’re still the greatest nation in the world, and I have hope that we can remain that way. If you are watching the news, hearing the hurt, and seeing the heartache across the country and wondering how I can still hold out hope for America, here’s how: because of you. You want better for America than what you’re seeing – and that, that gives me hope.
Don’t underestimate what you can do for your country.
Kindness, charity, and service can impact a life, a neighborhood, a country, maybe even a whole world. You’ve already given me hope, maybe you can provide that for someone else, too. Keep your faith in God, your hope in the hearts of the American people, and proactively work to make our future bright and you cannot lose.
I’m not ready to lose hope. Are you? I’m not giving up. Are you? I’m going to keep fighting. Are you with me?
Let’s get ‘em.
