It is disconcerting to see so many of this nation's citizens seeking after the pleasures and things of this world, more than the things of God. Our great nation was founded on the principles of honesty, integrity and service. It appears now that we are more concerned with greed, selfishness and personal gratification. Our national responsibility politically, corporately and personally is the pursuit of freedom, making ourselves and the world a better place to be.

When we become more concerned with fulfilling our obligations than pursuing our self-interests we will find the peace we seek.
