When in the Course of Human Events…

When did America become a country of people who say “we can’t?”

When did America become a country where our children… our children… cannot afford the medicine we invented?

When did America become the country where we shake our heads at gun violence, wring our hands, and say there’s nothing we can do?

When did America become the country incapable of separating the needy and desperate from those who seek to take advantage?

When did America become the country that runs away from a challenge?

When did America become the country that once put a man on the moon, at the cost of the lives of several willing American heroes, yet is now afraid of risk?

When did America become the country hiding behind the most powerful military in the world instead of projecting that power to protect those who need us?

When did America become the country of people who only listen to others with whom they agree?

When did America become the country where the value of the media is questioned but random, inarticulate social media postings are taken as the truth?

When did America become the country of people whose idea of analyzing a problem consists of Google searches and Facebook polls?

When did America become the country of people who do not have even a basic concept of the separation of powers or the process behind our government?

When did America become the country that hands the power of government over to the highest bidder?

When did America become the country that is a shadow of it’s former self?

And, most importantly, when will America return to the path of greatness tempered by wise and merciful justice?
