The Heart of the Matter
IWS Journal 2014 to 2016
[Oct. 2014] Getting to the heart of the matter requires examining the matters of the heart. Too many people are afraid of what they know they will find; so they don’t go looking. They won’t even look at their own reflection in the mirror.
This is why inaction and the unwillingness to take a stand are the only actions those without foundational principles can take.
[Oct. 2016] I am weary of debating with my friends and not-so-much friends, about who America will decide gets to occupy the White House on Nov. 8.
I am more interested in who you and I will be and where we will stand on 11-9.
The “we the people” who decide the fate of our Republic in a couple of weeks are not thinking like you and me, the individual. Perhaps you have noticed.
The fate of your family, neighborhood and community will be determined by who WE are and where WE stand, on 11-9 and beyond. The principles and values that we are willing to pledge our lives, fortunes and honor to defend, are the only ideas worth debating at this point.
God bless us all as the season of testing approaches.
