A perfect day to install a new flag pole.

Michael installed his flag pole yesterday, on the 8th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. When he and Collin raised the flag, I couldn't stop the tears. I hate the way this country is going politically. I see many of our precious freedoms being stripped away from us one by one, in the guise of compassion. I honestly hate the term "It is what Jesus would do", when we have been counseled time and time to stay out of debt. Is that any different for a government? Our constitution was divinely inspired and there are wicked and conspiring people that are threatening its very foundations. I am afraid it will get much worse before it gets better. Freedom is responsibility and slowly we are removing responsibility from our language. People do not excel when things are given to them on a platter. People stop excelling when what we work hard is taken away from us. Do not forget the messages found in Alma. People are not to be slaves to the government, but we are to remember the God that blesses us and created us.

Compassion and charity, generosity and beneficence is to be ingrained in our hearts and souls, that only happens when we CHOOSE to help one another, not forced to by a government decides we should.
