***NOTE*** The following is somethign I wrote to go with a post I am doing titled “Why Are You So Mad – The Face of Intolerance.” Which is a response to a blog post I read this week which illustrates the frustration I have being called intolerant for my beilefs. For some of my other thoughts on the question of intolerance I invite you to read this post.
*NOTE – To say that I wrote the following while I didn’t feel good would be true but I do not want that to be a cop out. I write what I feel -good or bad, positive or negative, sad and demented but always honest. I will not make an excuse, this is how I felt at the time that the words came out. I am using this as an example of what I believe we all go though – emotions that we all deal with – and how I deal. I share this because I believe someone is feeling the EXACT same thing and they need to know they’re NOT alone. If I am talking to you, leave a comment and we can talk. Send me an email and we’ll pray.
I intended to write what would amount to a treatise on the importance of the Declaration of Independence to our history and our future but after reading it again for myself – something I try to do a couple times a year – I decided that the words written by Thomas Jefferson – 238 years ago – do just fine on their own.
I highly encourage you to take a few minutes today and read the text of the most important document in American history.
