With all the turmoil going on in the world today I worry greatly about the future of America, your future, my kid’s future, my grandkids’ future.   How did we get to where we are today?  Such a lawless nation?  Where did the rule of law go?  Why is our nation in such a moral decline?  Why is our constitution being ignored and our rights being infringed upon?  Is it my fault?  Your fault?  Your teacher’s fault?  Society’s fault?  Is it a failing form of government?

With the specter of out of control Covid-19 increasing fear and economic ruin, and with the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM) gaining national prominence—in addition to protests and violence in our streets, America is certainly living in interesting times.

For many on the Left, there is a feeling that the upheaval has been a long time coming; racial and economic disparity, along with police brutality against people of color, could no longer be tolerated.  Something had to give.  And it has.

Socialism was being promoted in the U.S. long before Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected President and began implementing his socialist agendas. The national media, public education, university professors, politicians, the entertainment industry, and assorted propagandists continue to proclaim socialism the path to Utopia and capitalism the “Jack the Ripper” of economics.

Many have been led to believe Acts 2.44-47 in the Bible justifies a socialist economy, failing to understand believers in that passage voluntarily agreed to share their possessions equally – they were not forced to do so a socialist political state.

Years ago, about 11:00 PM I exited the Cooper River Bridge from Mt. Pleasant and merged onto I-26 toward Summerville.  Suddenly, one tire exploded!  Driving slowly on the tire rim, I finally found a place wide enough to pull over.  Around midnight I began to pray for help.  Miraculously, a young, off-duty, black police officer stopped to help me.  He changed my tire and sent me on my way.  Feeling eternally grateful, I mailed our Charleston policeman a thank you note.  This story exemplifies America’s vision of our men in blue.

Every summer, July 4th, Independence Day, is centered between June 19th, Juneteenth, and August 28th, I HAVE A DREAM DAY. This summer is no different; yet everything is different. Each of these days was once a much anticipated holiday; a monthly celebration denoting a cry for freedom and liberty.

At this time of year here in South Carolina and all across the nation, Korean War Veterans will remember the outbreak of the Korean War June 25th, 1950.

Because the Korean War came about on the heels of WWII, and because we were not directly attacked, ie: Pearl Harbor, many people, and our Government, could not accept the need to go to war in Korea. For that reason, and for the 70 years that have followed, it is still regarded as the Forgotten War” denying our Korean War Veterans the honor and respect they have earned.
