Sorry for America

We recently had a lovely old oak tree taken down in our yard. It still looked good on the outside, but it had began to lean toward the house. It was definitely a danger.

When the tree was taken down, it was found to be rotten on the inside and would have fallen soon. Sadly, it reminded me of America. We used to be like a tall, stately oak. Our government and its leaders were men and women of principle, who came to serve the people, not themselves or their political agendas.

Greed, graft, corruption, lies, cover-ups, immorality, violence have spread across this land. Good hard work has become a dirty word, replaced by a nanny-state government that brings dignity to no one. When the nation's foundations of righteousness are destroyed, what will the people do? The mighty oak of America has become rotten. How long before it falls?
