Thoughts on how an ordinary citizen can make a difference by strengthening faith in God, family, and country.
Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Attack on Prayer
Prayer is being attacked once again. Officials from Senior Citizens Inc. announced recently that open prayer could not be said on the food at the Ed young Senior Citizens Center in Port Wentworth, Georgia, because the food there was mostly covered by the federal government. Saying the blessing on the food would usher in the burden of separation of church and state. Instead of asking the usual open prayer on their food, senior citizens will be given a moment of silence during which they may offer their own personal - and silent - prayer.
This is just another example of how freedoms for many people are destroyed in the name of being tolerant of the wishes of a few other people. The people who continue to belief that there is a wall between church and state do not understand the First Amendment. The Founders set up a government where the citizens had freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.
I am a grandmother who is concerned about the direction our country and world are headed and what my grandchildren will inherit. I want to do my part to bring peace on earth and sanity to our insane world.
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
