Are we “One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all?”
Half a century ago, at the height of anti-Communist fervor, Congress added the words ”Under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance. It was a petty attempt to link patriotism with religious piety, to distinguish us from the godless Soviets. But after millions of repetitions over the years, the phrase has become part of the backdrop of American life, just like the words ”In God We Trust” on our coins and ”God bless America” uttered by presidents at the end of important speeches. (N.Y. times)
In today society it has become the melting pot for moral decay and decadence. We are now faced with the rottenness of a so call society that would cause the death of the already dead! The question is; how did we as a nation come to this brink? Look at what is happening even at this moment when our society is said to be more civilized. We have more people with degrees than at any other time in the history of this nation yet we are more morally bankrupt.
Just in case you might be wondering, I am not commenting on things politically; that will be for another time and place. I must say that the standard of leadership and the corruption is clear and hard to ignore. Therefore I must conclude that this is truly: R.I.P the end of a civil society. It is the thing that causes great nations to fall.
When I was a child it was said; manners and behavior will take you anywhere in the world. This is a far cry from those days when folks respected each other.
Respect for authority has been thrown out of the window and everyone is being governed by their own ideals. Is this the place we thought it would be in a moment like this? Respect for authority is at an all time low. It is so clear in the media; we look at it as a new norm. It is disgusting and rude and there is no other way we should describe it! Let us as a nation get back to the art of respect and for the ideals that this great nation was built upon! Don’t be afraid to stand up for what is morally right without intruding on the rights of others. Give respect where respect is due. Let us stay true to our motto, “One Nation under God.”
Happy thanks giving and may God bless us all as a nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all!
