United We Stand Stronger As Americans

Something I want to share with our members

Where Has My Country Gone?

Where has my country gone, I can’t seem to find it any where?
I remember as a child going to school and, starting it with the pledge of Allegiance, and a prayer.
I, never really never minded, I liked starting my day that way,
It made me feel good inside, to know that I had prayed.
Where is my country, the land I love is gone,
It’s hiding in far away lands and, fighting to keep us strong.
Where is my country, surely not in my grandchild’s face,
For, they do not know the song America, and that is a disgrace.
Where are all the truthful leaders, that fight for her each day,
They have found their way to another land, and left America get away.
Where is all the outrage of a country, that God shed his grace on to be free.
I know she will come back someday, for this is the only America I see.
Where is my country, I can not find her anywhere,
She has vanished in the dark of night, and left us without prayer.
Where are all the masses shouting you can not take her away,
She was given to us, with much death, and pain she is here to stay.
Where is America, she is crying out to thee, I am in your hands.
America if you really want to stay free.

This is how I feel right now about my country

There is more truth in that than I really want to admit. It is because of a loud and motivated minority that we find ourselves in this condition. The way to be certain that evil prevails is for good men to do nothing. Let us get involved, and reclaim what is ours.

I so agree with you that is exactly how I feel. I am not good at putting things into words but you were right on I couldn't have said it better. Thank you so much!!!!

"Nation Under God Shall Have A New Birth Of Freedom."

I pledge allegiance to the Flag,
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation, under God
Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

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.
