    Most of what we see on TV or hear on the radio about this nation we live in is the bad. It is rarely anything good but we all know that there is more good about the United States and being an American then not.

    Thought for the day...

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American
    sentiment and negativity, we should remember England's Prime Minister
    Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his
    Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:

    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many
    want in ... And how many want out."

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.

    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Reminds me of the verse in John,in which jesus is speaking.It means more than just dying for someone.

    What does our life consist of? TIME.

    And when we take time out of our lives,to help others,protection of their rights,helping to build a building,cut someones grass,help a neighbor cut down a tree,or even take time to just sit and listen to someone speak about something which we may or may not know anything about,and be interested.
    Then we are in effect laying down our lives.

    John 15:13
    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Peace and Plenty,
    Kevin

    If that does happen, one cannot be much of an American to begin with...
    At any rate, Great post Mark...
