Leaders

Just a few questions…if you can offer some logical answers I would love to hear!  🙂

*  Why should my children be raised to not be proud of their country?  Isn’t that what are leaders are portraying if they are making excuses for those killing our people and burning our flag?  Shouldn’t we be raising our children to stand up for their beliefs?

*  When Hillary Clinton spoke of our country’s tolerance with all religions from its start, did she remember that our country was built on Christian values?  Did she think that she just may be more tolerant of the attackers on our soil than many were to the owner of Chick Fil A?

* If these attackers truly attacked because of this film (which no one really knows) isn’t that proving the film’s point?

 

Leaders of this country…I want my children to grow up in a country that has enough defense funds to protect them.  I want my children to grow up in a country where they do not need to apologize for being American or for flying a flag on American soil.  I want my children to grow up in a country where they can continue to praise God and not be thought of as evil for being a Christian.  Leaders of this country…how do you plan to protect our freedoms?

On The Corner of Bitter and Sweet

I finished this book this morning.  It was a good read…the author wrote very well!  I enjoyed learning a bit of history through this historical fiction story.  I know not everything was completely accurate, but many things are glimpses of the time period.  Anyone who can make history entertaining gets my vote.  🙂

Because I am who I am, I wasn’t necessarily a fan of the love story.  Admittedly I am not one who likes love triangles (I know that takes away a lot of books).  This was not exactly a love triangle, but still, the main character held onto a former flame throughout his marriage.  My romantic heart wants him to love only one all his life.  I am going to choose to believe that he loved his wife so much that he chose her even though he had memories of a past…but I know that in the story he really loved them both.  Many romantics find that romantic, but I still like the one and only love stories.

My opinion doesn’t change that the book is well-written, a good story, and recommended.
