America! God mend thine every flaw

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

Yes, we have many flaws. We have so many citizens who do not seem to care about our history. They want to eliminate God from everything since they refuse to admit that all of our freedoms and blessings flow from God. Our founding fathers knew this and it was very apparent in the America I grew up in. God was still permitted in schools and in public meetings. God was not defined as in my personal faith. We had Christian and Jewish leaders pray. Congress and the Supreme Court opened with non denominational prayer. God's presence was welcomed in so many places by so many people. We sang religious music, some of the world's greatest classics in High School chorus. Now we have allowed the WALL to separate God from His people in most areas of life. We turn our back on Him. It is a time for people of all faiths to once again call upon His name and pray for the strength and insight to choose leaders who will once again allow our religious faiths to rise up and regain the freedom to practice our faith free of restraint. It is time to recognize our total dependence on God's continuing guidance to preserve our nation and to stop the downward spiral we are currently experiencing.
