I sort of “lost” it today, in a manner of speaking reading a blog post. There’s all sorts of pain, dismay, anger and ranting about the shape America is in.
I have loved and respected America and Americans all my life. I served in the military 26 years. The ugliness and anger in this country is due to failure of the country, following anything and everything but God and the letter/ spirit of moral values; some pick or interpret what to believe; some actually try, fail and try again to follow a peaceful path; however, there are more than a few who practice a faith whose God is Self.
Second, the failure of the Family to instill a self-respect and respect for others. Single-parent families, absentee dads, dysfunction or disinterest in raising children. A lack of training from earliest childhood. And third, a failure of a people to have ethics, education, and motivation to hold ALL levels of leadership accountable. Laziness, godlessness, and self-indulged people looking to blame and hate others is what causes this country, which had been the pinnacle of UNITY in the world, pain.
