Once again it seems we are a people looking for meaning in our battled world which seems to be under the gun on a regular basis. The operative words seem to be nuclear, hatred, fear and tottering on the edge. Worse still we seem to have lost our confidence in our institutions: justice, church, medicine, security.
A key question is, in all of the darkness, can there be light and hope? Our retort is a resounding “yes”.
Isn’t there hope because we are the heirs of American freedom and strength? Isn’t there hope because we are truly One Nation Under God? Isn’t there hope because our forebears built this nation and we vowed to save and enhance it for generations to come? Amen.
