One Nation Under God


I decided to reach out and risk slams. I have thought about it off and on and when articles pop back up; it reminds me to speak my mind with grace.

I ran across this article this morning on my Facebook.

The immediate question that arises in me is; why. Why is there a freeze? Why is there doubt? Why is there a why.

This is God’s earth,  his blue marble, his creation, his thought, his plan. We are guests. We are placed here to learn, love one another, help each other and pray for each other. We are here to help bring the non-believers to God; no matter what anyone else chooses to believe; this is my stand and belief. We are here to not be afraid to say thank-you.

We are not here to humiliate others by treating them different because they are not like us, or have the same money as us, or homes and cars. We are not here to take advantage of others by being shady or untruthful, or to make money from those that do not understand.

We are not here to make disrespectful comments to our President, our government. We are not here to force others to be on our side. We are not here to burn flags, beat and kill for pure pleasure or differences of opinions.

We are not here to judge. We have no right. We are not God. God placed those with a different color, a different language, a different culture for a reason.

If you are protesting placing your hand over your heart and saying the Pledge of Allegiance, than why are you here?

 

 

I Pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the Untied States of America.
And to the republic, for wich it stands, one nation under God.
Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America.
And to the republic, for wich it stands, one nation under God.
Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Speak:
The pledge of allegiancs to the flag, as a pledge to the ideals fo our
Forefathers.
The men who fought and died, for the building of the great nation.
It’s a pledge to fullfill our duties and obligations as citizons of the Untied States.
And to uphold the principals of our constitution.
And last but not least, it’s a pledge to maintain the four great feedoms
Cherished by all Americans, freedom of speech, freedom of religion,
Freedom for want, and freedom from fear.
I pledge allegiance, to the flag of the United States of America.
And to the religion, for wich it stands, one nation under God.
Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We are to stand together, help each other, look down on no one, love each other as we do ourselves.

There is so much rivalry on our land. There is sadness, depression, anger, hatred. The competition to be better and above others is at an all-time high.

I am proud to be an American. I remember saying the Pledge of Allegiance when I was a child in school. I remember being allowed to say God in schools. Church was a place to go and be proud of.

kidss

I am a better person for being taught to do what is right. I am proud of who I am and where I live.

Don’t you think we need to revert back to where we remember why we are here? Shouldn’t we return to helping our  neighbor? Shouldn’t we go back and remember, God made the land we walk on and we are lucky enough to be able to share a piece of God’s work?

  1. Wow, did I have a hard time getting this comment here. I tried to log in and was informed it was the wrong password even though it had been saved from previous log-ins. I finally reset my password, so now maybe I can comment. 🙂 Two thumbs up for this post. I actually saw a FaceBook post about this subject after I read this post. So you’re not alone.

  2. Sometimes it is hard for me to write about the deeper things I believe in, such as this, but this time I felt the need. Thank you for taking the time to read it. Passwords, what a pain, but we have to have them. Glad it got worked out for you. Hope you are doing well
