Happy birthday America

July 4, 2020

@Scott Stone

….even though the 56 delegates to the second continental congress didn’t sign the deceleration until August 2, 1776, we celebrate our nations founding on July 4th because in 1776 the second continental  congress ratified the deceleration of independence on that date.

Today most people look to the 4th of July as nothing more than an extra day off from work or time for a party while watching fireworks, these same people do not understand that there are others trying to bring down the very framework of this nation. Whether by openly disobeying the rule of law or defacing and destroying statues of the men who built this nation, like the coronavirus this hatred of what America stands for is spreading.

Without respect and the rule of law as demonstrated on the network news every night when we see domestic terrorists take over a portion of a city or when gangs of thugs attempt to deface or destroy statues, we are one step closer to the ‘new’ America these people are calling for.

I have no answer…

I can only pray there are those

who still hold

God, family, nation

as their personal cornerstone of life.

    Amen brother Pete.

    Little do these malcontents realize when they have kids a new set of grievances will be thrust upon them and this great nation. God help us.

    Dear Pete/ All,
    as looking to America from Europe (Germany) I think that obviously your President has to take over part of the responsibility for the things that are going on right now.
    He should try to play an integral role more than strengthen the hate.
    And his behaviour regarding the COVID-19 crisis is more than stupid.
    But nevertheless I fully agree that it is absolutely not acceptable what happens in terms of destroying statues nad therewith a part of Americas great history.

    Having been in the US a couple of times I pray for you and your Nation !

    And we can only pray for this once great but now wounded country and those of us who still believe in that shining city on the hill.
