Being a Beacon of Hope

Sometimes we in America forget how blessed we are to live in an incredibly wonderful country, failings and all, that values freedom unpracticed in some other places in the world. Sometimes we forget that the people of the world look to us for leadership on an array of issues.

Sometimes we forget that we have a responsibility to our global neighbors even when we do not see things eye to eye. We have a responsibility to live up to our values, especially when we ourselves are facing daunting times. The world is watching. We must not disappoint.

Being a beacon of hope is an awesome responsibility, one that we must forever be conscious of and with humility and grace take pleasure in.

May God bless America. May God bless the people of the world.
