Life is like a marathon. We all run to the limit of our capacity and hope to reach the end safely. The path may be laced with blisters, sprains, debris in our paths and fatigue yet the goal is to get to the finish line. Last week we took some time off to go on a trip to California—not California, Missouri, but the State of California. As I went through airport security, I was once again reminded of the government’s involvement in nearly every sector as we experienced long lines, delayed flights and invasive body examinations.
Having lived in the Boston area for a number of years, it was easy for me to visualize the events of the act of terrorism that took place recently.
The Preamble of the US Constitution says, “We the People of the United states, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.
We now wait and wonder how our national government is going to fulfill its primary duty to “provide for the common defense”. We are seeing governmental finger-pointing and few people talking about the Islamic motivation for this attack.
The news has been about treating the perpetrators as mere civil offenders and not enemy combatants. The CIA blaming the FBI and the FBI blaming the CIA.
Where is the unity we saw when we were attacked on 9/11? Congress members from both political parties were standing on the US Capitol steps and spontaneously started singing “God Bless America.”
We should be coming together with a renewed loyalty to our country, a fresh patriotic fervor and a stronger common bond as Americans. That’s what we saw on 9/11. We long to be inspired by acts of heroism, loyalty and masses of American citizens calling out to God for our help, protection and guidance.
This Thursday has been designated as the National Day of Prayer, but we need to pray everyday. To see if there are opportunities to pray with others in your area, you can click here:

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you’re a mile away and you have his shoes.
