“Imagine if we all ignored the divisive elements on both sides degrading our country and focus on building a better world for our children.” David DeGerolamo
When I read this yesterday I smiled. Then I realized there is only one way to reach this future for our children and I frowned.
I’m not sure when it happened, but a point in time came and Americans divided and we are not going to come back together peacefully.
We are divided on everything. From Life to Race to, well you name it we are divided. And I mean deeply divided.
I witnessed this deep division Monday night at the Salisbury City Council meeting on the Fame Statue. A statue that has been in Salisbury since 1905 is now so offensive to a group of people that they want it removed. And the hatred that they displayed and spoke of should give you pause. They didn’t much like me calling them what they are to their face either.
We all know that there is a war coming. There is no stopping it now. We are too deeply divided and can’t even agree on the simplest of things. History has a way of repeating.
The other side views us as evil. We view them as evil. Our side prays to God that this war won’t happen. Their side well they booed God on National TV in our own backyard in Charlotte NC in 2012.
The metaphor for evil is darkness. No more than the absence of truth. A void of reality. Like darkness, Evil has no power of its own. These people on the other side are giving Evil its power.
Evil throughout time has only been defeated in one way. Violence. We are going to have to fight for this better world.
Get your head right. Prepare for what is coming. Harden your Hearts. Love the ones close to you while you can.
Decision time is fast approaching.
