An older gentleman friend who is Catholic and served in the military and law enforcement told me America is finished. What he means is that we are falling out of our number one position. Am I ready to accept that? It has happened before to great empires - Greek, Roman, British. Is it our turn? The Dear Lord lets us suffer individually and as a group. He tells us to take up the cross. We will find out when we are dead and He reveals all...why this must be. Whichever way it turns out, the Man on the cross has my allegiance. A small music video tribute to my old friend.
