For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6
The eve is upon us and with that I say Merry Christmas to all!
Once again, I take this annual opportunity to continue to remind us all that even with our problems, we live in the greatest, most free and fair country in the history of history, and we live in the best of times where our poor have a standard of living rivalling that of medieval kings and queens. We live in a time when space travel is treated as if it was a crosstown bus ride, that medical miracles happen every day and for the past century, America’s greatest export has been prosperity.
We live in times only contemplated in the wildest fantasies of our grandparents, where literally nothing is impossible and issues are in such short supply, to find issues which to rail against, they must be invented.
If America is in decline, it is because we have chosen decline over prosperity.2020 is soon to be gone, but not soon to be forgotten. It performed an important function for America by outing her enemies within. 2021 can be a year of change if we choose to take up the banner and continue the fight in word and in deed.
My granddaddy taught me to always leave anything better than I found it.
That is my plan.
