I have to share with you a personal experience. We recently shared a Thanksgiving meal with about 50 people. Someone mentioned to me that since it was Thanksgiving shouldn't we give a prayer of thanks. I replied that it really was not my place to do that, but I went and asked the person in charge if we could give thanks. The person hesitated as I waited patiently for them to make that politically correct decision. I could see the wheels turning (should we or shouldn't we) and I smiled and they nodded their head to go ahead. I turned the group and I announced that we would like to say grace at this time and anyone who wanted to was welcome to join us. I gave a simple prayer that ended with, "In His name, Amen."
In the last Americanism blog, I wrote about building a bridge for the future generations. The actions you take today, like taking a stand and asking to give thanks, standing when our flag passes in a parade or giving a few minutes of your very precious personal time to volunteer are the foundation to building that bridge.
To be leaders of the 100% Team America, we must gently but firmly take a stand and lead by example.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah everyone and together we stand firm as we look forward to the New Year!
