It's Been a Long Time

It's been a long time! Almost a year and a half, wow. Anyway, I'm back, but that doesn't mean that I will be updating everyday; I'm now a senior in high school, and that means a lot of work for applying to colleges.

A few days ago, I stumbled upon my blog, and since then I have been reading my posts nonstop. It reminded me of how much I actually enjoyed blogging. This is my first returning post.

About the same time I discovered my page, my father e-mailed me an intriguing poem (many of you may have received it too). If any of you remember Judge Roy Moore, the one who was removed from his bench for displaying the Ten Commandments in his court room. Along with working to gain back the right of publicly acknowledging God, Judge Moore wrote this poem:

America the Beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine,
choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges;
who throw reason out the door.

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
if you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.
-Judge Roy Moore

I thought that America the Beautiful just about summed it up.
It's good to be back.

Fighting for truth, justice, and the capitalistic way
