Last night I watched a program on the history channel which appeared to discredit our founding fathers by exposing all the secrets they could possibly dig up.  At first I thought I was watching an episode of TMZ, but this was the history channel.  Has our country become so hungry for dirt that they look for it anywhere they can find it?  It did make me wonder how children will look at the leaders of today in two hundred years.

The fact is, that the founders of the United States of America were not perfect, but what they accomplished was to set a foundation for a government which has endured for over 200 years and opened up opportunities for other nations as well.

We need to restore patriotism in our country, before it becomes just another fact for the history books, which are already being corrupted.  Our nation wasn’t built on just a group of men who met secretly and plotted against their governing country.  It was built on an idea which still opens door for those fleeing oppression.  Our children need to understand that and thank God every day that He has given us a land that permits us to be free.

In God’s history book, the Bible, we see hundreds of examples of how He used ordinary, sinful men to accomplish His purpose and to do it in an extraordinary way.  He also sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to carry our imperfection to the cross

Dear God, thank you for the blessing of my country.  Though it consists of imperfect people, you have seen fit to bless it in countless ways.  In a time when patriotism is being questioned, please inspire a love of country in the hearts and minds of future generations.   Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I think discrediting founding fathers and other great persons in American history says way more about the people and institutions behind such programs and books than it does about the actual subjects. Agendas are running high. Everyone seems to have them these days. Discrediting thosewho who built this great nation opens the doors to changing out; or so they hope. Thanks for your article.

      I agree. There is really nothing to gain by doing so. We can learn so much from history, especially the heroes that fought to preserve our great country. Without a past there is no future.
