Your elders

Greetings. I just read a news article where someone locally made the statement that our highschool and college students can understand the injustices of our society, so why cannot the grownups? Well, first of all - contrary to her accusation - there happen to be grownups who are aware of social injustices and actually have been addressing them for some time - this person and her young friends just don't have enough history in their background to realize that. Or perhaps they don't socialize with enough grownups to realize it. However, the main response is simple: Grownups have more sense than to let their kids decide what is best for our society.

Not sure what to do?

II Kings 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? 4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. If I do nothing, nothing will happen. If I do something and it is not right, God will shut the door. If I act, and the door is open, then God's will is done. So, imitating these lepers, I get up to do XYZ that is at hand, and whatever other good I may do. I will watch God work. Why not? The next steps will become evident as I act.

Letter to Sen. Blackburn

23 June, 2020 Dear Sen. Blackburn: Greetings.  Thank you for taking the time to talk with Hugh Hewitt this morning.  Poor Hugh.  I love him, but he's such a radical Lincoln-loving Unionist that he fails to understand the sentiment of our country after that war.  When the war was over, there were many efforts made to reunite the country.  Each side was allowed to have their heroes, but in addition, these heroes were owned by the whole country.  Why?  For all those generals were Americans - especially if the Northern view of the politics of the war was correct.  America was proud to have been the homeland of several of the greatest military geniuses in history, who were praised around the world: Generals Lee, Jackson, and Forrest.  The American history textbooks written for our schools not only praised the Northern generals but the Southern as well - for we were all Americans.  Many of these Confederate officers had stirling records in the U.S. Army before the war.  In
