Let us not forget that our Country was firmly founded on the Principles and Beliefs stated that we can still say that, IN GOD WE TRUST! We must not forget to whom we trust and whom we are dependent on. Our Beautiful Land of the Free! Home of the Brave! Is a Blessing from God! Let us NOT Continue to Turn our BACK to Him. I ask that we continue to Praise Him in Prayer, and to respect all that come to Our Great Land and Share our Freedom, so that they may find Peace. We MUST Continue to put our TRUST in God as our Forefathers did, and Study His Word, please start with 2 Chronicles 7:14, and may God continue to Bless America. We must Keep our President and all our leaders in Prayer, Daily. May God Bless you and Keep you! Love to Be an American, now share that Love with all you meet!

The fruit of Rev. Joseph Lowery’s prayer is bare. Faith to piss off many supporters…mission accomplished.Shouldn’t the prayer be intended to support to the tune of a well being nation? Joseph Lowery’s doesn’t believe in harmony and peace between races, pay back is sour…yet he believes is sweet. It’s obvious that he thinks other races do not possess the necessary skill and knowledge to perform adequately. Guess what Joseph Lowery’s is suffering from? You got it! An inferiority complex.He will never feel good enough, therefore, he bashes and discrimates others for their race.Martin Luther King represented honor and respect. Shouldn’t Joseph understand the meaning to forgive by now? I guess not with such a victorious inferiority complex he has set by example.He has insulted Obama’s white Mommy, and all other races. Instead of working on peace and harmony between races, he did the opposite.Joseph is sending me the message that various races are not a human beings but a color.Thank God he isn’t my grandpa…I’d be embrassed even at his age of 87. I guess I have to forgive him…because his heart is filled with torment and hate.As for Joseph Lowery….”Les gens qu’on honore ne sont que des fripons qui ont eu le bonheur de n’e” tre pas pris en flagrant de¤ lit. Respected people are only rascals who have had the good fortune not to be caught in the act.”In conclusion, Thomas Traherne once said,”Your enjoyment of the world is never right, till every morning you awake in Heaven: see yourself in your Father’s palace; and look upon the skies, the earth, and the air as celestial joys: having such a reverend esteem of all, as if you were among the angels.”
