America -Time To Reboot

OK, the first thing I want you to do is to shut down your computer, then reboot.
 Welcome back. What you just did was to experience what it takes to shut down and restart something, in this case, your computer. You made a conscious decision to allow an event to happen over which you had complete control. You created a situation that had to go back and start itself all over again, reconnecting itself along the way to a brand new start --- easy, wasn't it. Reboot to save America-- not so easy.

Why you ask did I request you to shut down and reboot?

Desperate times call for clear thinking and decisive action, and that means action of the affirmative kind. When we look at the "big picture", there is one, and only one conclusion, as to how to get out of the mess "we" have created in this great nation. What I mean by this corroborative statement, is that we as a nation, "must start all over", and maybe we can get it right this time around. We are the one's who are responsible to undo the bad times and mistakes that are a part of America's history. This is the time to stop pointing fingers and always putting the blame on others for this downward spiral of a nation that seems to be leading the world towards total moral decline. Staying on this course will lead us to a disastrous future.

Yes, you read me right, we have to go back to the very beginning, because that is where we will find the bane mistakes we made right from the get-go. In order to do this without a lot of digging into the history books, it is imperative to know when who ever dropped anchor here first; "however they came ashore", probably came with little on their backs or in their stomachs, other than a dream, and a lot of anxiety. Along with that dream they also had something that seems to have been lost along the way, that was a belief that they could have a better life here than they did in their homeland. They certainly weren't perfect, as no one is today, but they weren't soft, spoiled, narcissistic, or arrogant about their future. What they were was optimistic and full of hope. And I must say, contrary to what is being taught into today's America; they believed in a creator. I wasn't there at the time, but I am pretty sure the history books will not reveal the word spiritual was on the tip of everyone's tongue --- they had God in their heads. The history books will reveal that. Seek it and you will find it.
Fast forward to right now in America and what do you see? Don't tell me, I so already know and so do you. Like what you see? Of course you don't. Stop believing things will change for the better, hoping someone else will do it, because until  we change ourselves and start all over again, the future looks far from bright for our children now doesn't it? Come on wake up, and face the fact that we 'must" save the future for our children or there will be hell to pay. And pay we will, in particular, our children will be making the payments. This is something they do not deserve, they deserve better. This turn around can not be sugar coated, there is not enough sugar for that.

How do we begin to do this you ask? Seem impossible, does it not? Well I have "good news" for you, it is not, and it's not too late, but we must get started right now. Read my post "A Believer Or A Pro-claimer".We have "everything" we need to do this, that our ancestors did not have. Major advances in education, medicine, science and technology, along with the major last piece of the puzzle piece that can help to finally create peace; the world wide web. But, first we must stop using it as a weapon of "mass distraction", but begin using it as a magnet to bring us closer together. This can be done. It is our only hope of having a peaceful America for our children and their children's children. This is not an enigma.

We must be the catalyst; the beacon of hope and peace for the rest of the world to follow. What a great legacy for the history books. America has always been the leader of most everything good anyway. We have just lost our way, and we are the only way "back to the future".

Remember, you don't know what you've got until it's gone.
Hold on, help is on the way, I can hear your prayers.
We are the save boat.

Finally, we need to seek and find the answers to these four questions before we can even begin to make a new start. The questions of the origin of man, morality, meaning, and destiny. When we find the answers, peace will follow.

This is all I have to say.
