God Bless America!

Yes, another year has gone by, and despite a culture which seems to be headed in the wrong direction, a questionable economy wrecked by an uncertain fuel future, and a weak slate of presidential candidates for the upcoming election season, we are all nonetheless blessed to be living in the greatest democracy in the history of mankind.

Our national formation is still a marvel of leadership, savvy, compromise and trust in Providence. Perhaps the greatest act of the new republic was President Washington's giving back his power, after two terms in office. He was offered President for Life and probably could have crowned himself King of America. His act of honor and restraint, confirmed a sacred trust between the governed and the governor. Let's hope his example continues to guide us.

I still believe in the good of the country and its people, and its future.

God bless America!
