While the freedoms we enjoy as Americans are unsurpassed, I cannot help but think of how these came to be . . . with all rooted in a strong belief in God.
And it has been this unwavering faith in God by the overwhelming majority of Americans through out our beloved country’s history that I believe has nourished Her into what She has become today. (don't miss this---In God We Trust, allow to load)
One might even say that it was by the grace of God that America survived Her bitter, bloody civil war . . . as it was the sins of some Americans that caused it and not the country. Sadly, it took too many more years before equality and true freedom were realized for all American citizens.
I also suspect there are those who will say . . . where was God at any given time in America’s past or present when it relates to a particular event.
All I can say is . . . God given free will applies to all with each one accountable to Him, no matter if you try to rationalize differently.
Besides wishing it never happened . . . Would you prefer different outcomes to the Civil War, World War I, and World War II?
I sure find it hard to visualize anything very positive just with a different outcome to World War II. Think about America without its achievements and the leaders, who you admire since World War II. Then there is the question about freedom itself, let alone all the rights associated with being an American.
So, I say thank God for all who have made America what She is today, allowing Her to overcome the actions of those who caused internal and external strife . . . with special thoughts for the brave fallen, who we honor every Memorial Day.
