concerning direction and identity, with a sense of peaceful sure
purpose. With all the inbred fighting factions spinning the world
into a petty den of thieves, disgust also has no shortage. Love
evaporates where the greedy dominate the meek and steal the truth
from our children. Hearts cry out ignored in amongst the many.

Liars keep justice hidden in the "service" of all
Arrogance reveals one’s clear lack of kind service
Unity is found through care for one another
Reception of Christ uncovers the highest citizenship
Trust should be in the power and goodness of God
Greed and thirst for power betrays public trust
The Bible’s sacred truths bind society together
Our countries greatest value is found in spirituality
Evil destroys both itself and part of those it touches
Hope for civility is a prelude to civilization
Boldly tempting fate can invite unwanted calamities
Unanswered prayers divulge the depths of faith
Truth is a prize worth nurturing

Struggles set the course as life is.

Darkness is contained in the bowels of hell.
