The last couple of weeks, I have been more tuned into what is going on in our country and our world.
I worry about our soldiers, are we fighting an endless war similar to Vietnam? Are we as a country trying to force what we want on other countries, instead of letting them live as they live? Can we as a country really make a change? Once we leave Iraq, will it stay as it is today? I don't think so.
The oil spill, wow... I am amazed with our government lack of response to helping those so destroyed by this disaster. This is a man made disaster, one that is changing lives on a minute by minute basis. There is a link below Evacuate Louisiana, watch it... it will change how you see the spill, it might become a real disaster to you.
Call me a worry wart, call me in panic mode, call me whatever, but I worry as a parent what kind of world we are leaving for our children.
The debt of this nation is out of control! Dave Ramsey where are you?
Our fellow citizens can't find work, are losing their homes left and right, why? Because of our government? Because they let Freddie and Fannie out of control? Bail them out? Sure.. they did...but what about the people? What happens to them? Our government does not care. Listen please.... THEY DO NOT CARE!!!
Don't misunderstand, there are those who have taken advantage of the unemployment extensions, deliberately not finding work. But I can say I honestly have put out so many applications, I have lost count. I know of one particular position that had 50 applicants, 5 of which had masters degrees. All for one clerical position. There are truly some of us who can't even get a phone call, much less an interview. I am not a 99'er...I am a 26er... no extensions.
If we the people do not band together and make the changes to this country with our vote in November, I worry again, we will be in more trouble than we are today.
This week will be interesting to watch the news unfold.
My prayer: Lord, with all I have inside my heart, I pray you will help all of us who know and love the Word you have given us to live by. Help please, those suffering in so many way, and touch them with your healing hand and give them strength to endure life as we see it unfolding before our very eyes. I ask with a humble heart you will wake up your people, cause a revival to occur in our country that has never been seen before. Thank you Lord in advance for the prayers you have answered and for hearing our cries. These things I ask in your Son's precious name, Jesus Christ.... Amen
