What Happened to My Country?
What happened to my country? What happened to my America? The country that was once proud of itself, who didn’t care what other nation’s thought because its conviction of truth was greater than its need for approval. What happened to the people who loved each other, who wanted the best for each other? Where did the love for the underprivileged, the not so fortunate go? When did we become a people of entitlement and offense?
What happened to our schools? When did they stop teaching the National Anthem? Why did they stop saying the Pledge of Allegiance? When did test scores and quotas become more important than character and perseverance? When did band become such a burden on the school system? Where is the outrage? Why haven’t the people done something?
When did our government lose its effectiveness? How come we’ve allowed professional politicians to govern our land? When did a lobbyist’s money become more influential than the people’s voice? How could big oil and big pharma have such a tremendous impact on our country’s journey? How come electric cars and cancer cures aren’t common items in today’s life? Why does the government let a company’s profits become the litmus test for whether legislation becomes law?
We are a nation void of God. The truth is that these events will continue. We’ve accepted that it is what it is. I only wrote this because the magnitude of where we stand has been on my heart. We have fallen so far, so fast.
