This country didnít become great without courage. This country didnít become powerful without strengthening its weaknesses. This country didnít become a symbol of freedom without facing its fears.
It is common that as poverty increases, so does crime. Our country is facing difficult changes. Our citizens are facing difficult challenges. The power of tomorrow has its seeds in the hearts of today. If our children are to live in a safe and bountiful world, the qualities that will bring this into fruition must be in us.
Never forget that our personal integrity is not nor ever has been a Wall Street decision. The strength and the qualities are in us. We must recognize and be what we really stand for.
When we cannot rely on financially devastated government agencies to care for our multiplying needs, we, like our ancestors before us, must rely on and look after each other with in the strength of our families, groups and communities. We must be the protection, the humanitarian integrity and the nation we want and we must start with ourselves until we once again prove that the American people are still the brave and courageous people that built this nation and we can build it again
We can all learn to live better on less, increase our quality time with each other and bring safety and harmony into our homes and communities. Here are the steps that lead to success;
1-Teach our children the power of integrity and the pit falls of blind trust. Help them understand that Piety and Integrity donít always travel together.
2-Set up a neighborhood watch program. Invite the entire neighborhood.
3-Set up safety houses, educational programs and groups for the protection of children.
4-Burglar proofs your homes. Burglars go where is convenient.
5-Have a good relationship with your police force. Volunteers working with police are a great idea.
6-Involve your children in adult directed sports, creative and educational activities.
Activities help neighbors bond to protect of their families and their communities. They create respect and caring that improve the over all quality of lives.
Caring is an investment of time and energy. Now more than ever, our country needs people who have the heart and the time to enrich our lives with intangible qualities that come from the integrity of genuinely looking out for and caring about one another.
Our county is not a place for the faint at heart, but the American people have never had a reputation for being faint at heart. We have a history of BEING THE CHANGE we want in our future, and knowing it works.
