A new year, a new challenge

January 4, 2013 

For the year 2008 we voted for change from our government. Four years later we know what a fiasco this turned out to be; a little forward motion and too much blame.

For all the commotion caused by our elected officials we received a blessing; our citizens came out in droves to vote to demonstrate their discontent.

For the year 2013 our citizens face a new challenge that our elected officials don’t understand or don’t want to fix, and that is our economy. Our citizens must improvise and on their own start new businesses that will stabilize our economy. Our country was once called the land of opportunity. Don’t let that saying pass away.

Let us pray to God through Jesus that our people will succeed in spite of any obstacles placed before us.

May God bless America and her people in all their endeavors.
