On my way home from a side job yesterday, I was listening to the radio, and it stoked some thoughts.
I realize it was a depressing set of posts I put up on Monday - that's how I felt. But that's not the whole story. Sometimes we need to be reminded of other things.
America is not lost yet. The spirit of America is still alive. Joplin, Missouri should show us that. The floods in North Dakota, also. People still help others, still love others, still fight for what is right.
Yes, the governments are doing all that they can to squelch the spirit - but they have not succeeded yet. There is still hope. We can still restore America, hopefully without bloodshed. Perhaps that is overly optimistic. We must hope for the best, though. Prepare for the worst, yes, but never lose hope.
If people need educated, let's educate them. If they need woken up, let's shake them. Let us do whatever we can to save our country without a bloody fight.
Never give up.
