HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

You have to travel to other countries to really get an appreciation for what we’ve been given as citizens of the United States of America. While a big portion of the world earns less than $2.00 per day, we spend more than that on our morning tea. While countries struggle to get running water and food and jobs to its people, our 10% unemployment looks good to many countries.

Yes, we have our issues. We’ve overspent,  the earth is bleeding oil in the gulf coast, and we are the only civilized society in the world where 60 out of every 100 babies are born fatherless.  Every 9 seconds a teen is dropping out of high school, and 65% of those end up incarcerated.

Yet and still, we are beyond blessed. We are givers, 50% of us gave relief money to Haiti, more than any other country. We still have a society where you can be whatever you desire to be. There is opportunity here. Don’t count us out too soon. One thing I know is we are resilient and compassionate overall.

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.

Enjoy your 4th of July and don’t forget to pray for America!
