“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” ― John Adams
“Terrorism is a psychological warfare. Terrorists try to manipulate us and change our behavior by creating fear, uncertainty, and division in society.” Patrick J. Kennedy
I will not feed into the division that has arisen in this country, because I feel we have done too much of that lately. I’m not going to rant over things of which I have no control. I merely am saddened by what is happening to my country. It’s time to stop arguing over which party is right – who should be running the country – why our elected president should be impeached – why our police should be persecuted for doing their jobs – why there is so much hatred, anger and violence.
The only way to achieve unity is to start putting our own personal needs aside and begin to think of others. With this being a time of patriotism – Flag Day and the Fourth of July – I think it’s the perfect moment to shed our differences and begin to work as a United nation once more. Our founding fathers would be shocked to see what has become of the almost perfect document of the Constitution. They would indeed be ready to move back to England had they known to what extent our nation has deteriorated.
The only way unity comes,
is through the governance of our Creator God. We should once more put our trust in Him and live according to His will for our lives. We can’t change the world, but He can.
“But he knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls.” Luke 11:17
In the above passage, Jesus had just called out a demon from a man and was accused by the crowd as using the power of the devil. His explanation is clear. Anyone divided against another cannot stand alone. We all need each other. We’re in this together and God is the force that holds us.
