A rather frightening world is emerging while we Americans stand by and watch. In my thoughts about the random violence here in these United States, my thoughts turn toward the Middle East. I’ve been to the Middle East twice. School children and their teachers carry military weapons in Israel when on field trips (and maybe other times, but I saw this first hand in 1979). Obviously for protection, just in case. Often I’m sure has been the case when they came in handy. I’m wondering if life in these United States will become like the Middle East way of life. No one is safe. Radical religious groups have surfaced and created violent lifestyles over the centuries, it’s the norm there.
We used to feel safe, here in these United States. We are across the pond from violent tendencies. But now the violence has followed us, it’s not only entering our shores, it’s crossing our borders, and it is emerging from the tumors beneath the surface. It has taken people without direction, and given them “just cause” for senseless violence.
Where will it all end? Gun control could help, but those that own legally are not the perpetrators, it’s those that steal. It’s those that slip out of the FBI’s eyes when they shift, leaving that questionable person to continue, and then “didn’t see it coming.”
Remember Nazi Germany? The Jews were blamed for everything by the Fuhrer. They say it can’t happen again, but I beg to differ. Germany thought Hitler was wonderful, until he had complete control and the worm turned. This example has been brought up a lot lately, my concern is that those causing the violence will indeed blame those of us who are trying to defend our country and our freedom will take this opportunity to rob us of exactly that. I am concerned that the violence at the nightclub, then at Walmart in Texas, and further adventures in violence, may be the leverage our government will use to declare a military state and dictatorship. (I hope I’m not right.)
Is the election all a ruse, meant to distract America? What will happen next? Can we trust our government? I’m sorry to say, I do not trust them. In the end, I have to watch out for me and my own.
No answer here, but just watching and waiting, and hoping a Savior will arise…a theme throughout the history of the world…
