“No refuge could save the hireling and slave. O’er the [land of the free] and the [home of the brave]. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just. And this be our motto- ‘In God is our trust.'” (F.S. Key 1814)
In the age of #’s, DM’s and twitter, are [we] truly putting our trust in God or are we simply living life in the moment? And as a people, is this what the struggle is all about?
Right now we are in the midst of an ideological warfare, where few stand on the front lines of the battlefield, while most remain succombed and unconscious. Rather than unite and create a vision that removes the cultural [f]ears of all “nations and tribes so that we may know one another,” we continue to allow the minority to divide us and extract the power we possess to free ourselves.
