(The following remarks were written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning commentary some time ago.)
This is powerful and so very true. Please God, help us, forgive us, have mercy on us.
(I do not know why it is doing this crazy
spacing, but I'm much too tired to redo.)
In the beautiful song , The Battle Hymn of the Republic, I am remembering these words:
Thinking of the tragic incident that took place in Fort Hood Army Base this week , I want to pray to our Heavenly Father.
First of all, Lord, help us be aware when there is "a snake in the grass"; when there is an enemy in our midst, who is lying low, undetected, until he is ready to strike.
And Dear God, please bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her.
God please forgive America.
God save America;
God have mercy upon America;
God bless America.
Thank you, Lord.
A grateful citizen,
And then let's be kind to ourselves also.
Sometimes we need the very things
