For Which We Stand

United We Stand Stronger As Americans


What Now?

 

When Marco Rubio was knocked out of the race, I felt sick.  I did not know what I was going to do and as much as I could feel OK about any of the others, I still wanted my choice, but he was out!  Well, I will just have to see who would be the last man standing.  I never thought in my wildest dreams that the last man standing would be Donald Trump, but he was just that and I would have to get used to it.  It took a while, but eventually I accepted that he may have not been my choice, but he was the people’s choice, and that is what really counts in the end I believe.  So I prayed a lot and decided that there must be a reason that he is our choice.  What now?

 

I watched and listened as the “Establishment” one by one fell in line and decided that they also would accept the “people’s choice”, well not all, but nearly 90 percent.  That 10 percent would fall in line or so I thought.  As I found it difficult to support Mr. Trump, I thought eventually those who protested so strongly would also find a way to accept Mr. Trump and decided to look at what I could agree with and it did finally make my support easier.  But what now?

 

If America, and of course I mean Conservatives, Republicans and Independents did not collectively support Mr. Trump, HRC would win and the America I spent 20 years of my life defending, or at least serving my country in the United States Army (ASA) first, then (INSCOM) a part of the Intelligence community, would soon disappear and then what?  Have we all lost sight what America would look like as it fell into socialism and then communism?  The Democrats have brought us to the brink of socialism as it is.  Are we missing the importance of keeping our great country in the image of what our forefathers intended?  Do we want our “Constitution” to disappear along with the Republic that we are?  More and more people are drifting to the Democratic party or at least voting for them to govern us.  More and more are finding it easier to live off of those who are willing to work for a living, but sometime in the not so far future there will be more depending on others that there are others to support them.  Other people’s money will run out sometime and actually that has already happened.  20 Trillion dollars in debt, an America I never thought I would see in my life time.  But here we are, and what are we going to do about it?  What Now?

 

I say, those who still love the idea of “The United States of America”, the America our forefathers envisioned, must be willing to take a chance on Mr. Trump.  To let Hillary win will mean the end of America as we know her.  Not to do anything will effectively be electing Hillary Clinton to the Oval Office and there will be no chance to recover from a “Terminal” America.  So, it is up to “We the people” and no one else to risk a maybe “Trump Presidency” over an absolute “Hillary Dictatorship”!

So, Now What?

God heard my Prayer today

God heard my prayer todayNow I know God hears my prayer’s every day, but today, I really felt he was paying attention to me as I said a prayer for my son who is in serious harm’s way right now, you know, that part of the world where everyone is demonstrating with violence all around. No sooner than I finished my prayer, a simple prayer, that went something like this:“Dear Lord, I know you hear from me every day and I am always asking for so many things related to our troops, my son, and my…Continue

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
