Hope

Let's drop politics for a moment shall we?

In an era where Christmas spirit is in short supply, and where the idea of wishing someone a Merry Christmas is deemed inappropriate, I submit to you the following story. (link at bottom of article)

In the past, faith, good spirit, kindness, and hope were attributes that Christmas brought out of individuals. It was a time of peace, of good will towards men, of kindnesses, and of heart. This time of year, above all times, is our chance to show we are human and give reason to show one another the good in all of us. I would argue that this should not be a one time a year event, but an everyday occurance, but let's not be picky. We have to start somewhere.

There is something special in the season, and it really does not matter if or how you celebrate the time or not, there is just something irresistable in it all. Yet, hearing how shoppers trample over one another to get the greatest deal or latest gadget might lead one to think that this "spirit" is dying. It can be depressing knowing that "good will towards men" might be turning into "who cares about you, I'm doing what's good for me!"

Despite the negativism in much of our population, and the air of distrust that we project upon one another, let us not forget how a simple smile or kind word can do wonders, how a kindness is not forgotton, and how hope is contageous. It is hope that will get us through hard times, and our ability to love, no matter how different we are, is our way to light up the darkness. Let your light shine this holiday season and EVERYDAY.

I hope this story is an inspiration to you all.

Dear Readers

Unfortunately, I have been working a ridiculous amount of hours over the past month and have had no time to post to the site. However, things appear to be slowing down and I will begin posting regularly again in the next few weeks. I apologize to anyone still reading the site, and I look forward to reading and responding to any posts I have not yet addressed.

If you have been following recent events, you would have seen congress continuing to spend at an unprecedented rate, the corruption in the Illinois government, the nationalizing of banks, the efforts to control the auto industry, and the continued power grab by the federal reserve and the U.S. government. All of this points to a continued effort to destroy our freedoms as Americans, and the foundation of the Constitution.

Below is a video that shows that there were those many years ago that saw this coming. Like the people of this nation, they were ignored. Make no mistake, this was no accident. Despite media and government continually trying to point the finger away from themselves, I ask you to think critically as you watch the following video.
