America Needs New Years

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 8:51 am

History documents for us the successes and failures of the past. Traditionally, New Years affords us opportunity to not only reflect on the past but to resolve for better days ahead. America needs resolution.

First, America needs to remember her glory days and to reflect on how she experienced them. America giftoftimehas not heeded the lesson of history.  America has forgotten who she is, what she believes, and what she is to do. The church of Ephesus (in the second chapter of the Book of Revelation) had abandoned its “first love” and priorities and was admonished to remember from where it had fallen, repent, and return to its original status. If not, its public reputation, influence, and force for good would be removed. America must recover her sense of identity and purpose before we can forge a path of success into the future.

Then, America needs to be resolute. She must recognize the failed political and social philosophies and policies of the past, and turn around (repent) and recover those ideals that made us a successful and prosperous nation–In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, and Liberty. We must return to those “first principles” that made us a great nation: inalienable, God-given rights; individual self-government; and limited, decentralized civil government. America must take immediate action. Americans must once again become informed, involved, and accountable, then hold its leadership accountable.

America cannot do it without you. You are America. May God bless America once again.
