O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
In an age where the mention of “God” is forbidden because it may “offend” someone or, as some believe, does not belong anywhere in established traditions that concerns government – this man brings tears to one’s eyes.
The following is a good example of how our society has become bankrupt in terms of values and just plain ethical behavior – a moral issue or not.
Read Outside the Beltway and see how Generation X has come to believe that profanity should be part of our culture; when in fact, it only demonstrates how our society has become intellectually deficient.
While it is okay to use profanity in anything written, the word “God” as in “God We Trust” is forbidden.
If America wants government to be reformed, we must first reform ourselves and insist upon the traditions and standards that made this nation great in the first place. If you haven’t noticed, our nations standards have gone down the tubes that coincides with corruption of the federal and some state governments and provides the assumption that ethics and values are “old fashioned” just as they assume our Constitution is.
